Cycling V Running uphill

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.
