TT up Breedtsnek

Has anyone timed themselfs up the climb? From the T junxtion on the Magaliesburg side (just where the road starts going uphill) to the top.

It could be fun to get a group of riders, and do as our running club sometimes do: slowest start first, and then every couple of seconds, a rider.

I've seen the Thug doing hill repeats there, so no doubt he has timed it.  I could tell you how long it takes me to the top but don't feel like embarrassing myself right now

Length of climb and gradient?

 

From where it starts getting steep to the top is about 4kms, the ascent over that distance is about 300m

T-Junction = 0km Alt on the day I have recored = 1468m.

From T-junction to base of real climb = ~3km Alt. 1562m

Base of real climb to summit = ~2km Alt. = 1708m

 

Again Altitude varies with barometric pressure, however it is fairly safe to say from T-junction to Summit = 240m. The real work is the other side!

 

Gradient on Real climb ~9-11%. Gradient on the other side goes up to 13% at times, but that climb is ~4km from the little stream at the bottom.

 

Note: Ignore the -gradients reported decending the otherside. Edge 705 has many weaknesses, one of which is measure gradient on fast descents. The max gradient when climbing was reported at 13%.

You guys are way to hardcore for me. I can just ride up there - not a f0k TT up there!

 

If anyone TT'ing wants to build - you more than welcome to tow me up.
