With all the talk, which do you consider to be Jhb toughest race or are there others, i have kept it to Jhb area.

It's long and Sugar Bush is kinda in the middle and butchers hill on the way back just before the end is the final killer

I would however prefer the following modification to the race for victory - start a gold reef and finish on the top of the last climb of the 40 km loop of sugar bush, now that would be something and the race would still be close to the 100km mark - just a lot tougher.

If you compared total ascent I would guess D2D at 1,4% of distance. Argus 1% 94.7 1,2%. Who remembers Tour de Gold up Hyperama Hill 19 get off and push %

No question for me the R4V, while the Dome was chalenging with the R4V you do Sugarbush, steps and then Kliprivier.

Compare winning average speeds R4V 2006 43.6 kmh, won by Darryl Impey. He was in the winning break at D2D 2007 and averaged 40.19kmh. One or two hills does not make a race tough when the rest is flat.

We're talking about us ordinary cyclists buckstopper!  Darryl Impey and the elites are in a league of their own.
