    A couple of years ago I remember a challenge race between Spain's
    Martin Fiz (a world champion marathon runner) and US postal cyclist
    Rubiera. The race was to be conducted up the last 6 km of Angliru. The
    Angliru is reputedly the most difficult paved climb used in pro
    cycling. The last 6 km was choosen as this is the steepest part of
    this climb (so no advantage to Rubiera) with gradients that go up to
    22%.

    Does anyone know if this race took place and what the result was?

    The buzz about this was around October 2002, if that helps, but I don't recall
    hearing any result either.
