The attached map shows total climbing of 1570m for the Argus route. I've seen 938m on Mapmyride Is there any consensus on this question?

methinks/hopes much faster. Do not know we everything was so slow saturday. Weather was good and lekker route. Compare the winning times.

 

I actually thought the 94.7 was tougher than the Argus :oops:

How do I now explain being slower over 94.7 than I am over 110

True dat! Was the missus' first real visit to Jorzi! All she wanted to do for the first 3 days was sleep. Ran out of gas quite early.

  • 2 weeks later...

So, what's the final verdict?

How much climbing will 35 000 plus riders do in a few weeks?

 

Or will it take two years, aka Contador's court case, to get the right answer out of you bunch?

:w00t:
