Does anyone know how steep this climb is? also where is it?

She did have an extra advantage...a 25-tooth chain ring.

"Some of the girls had a 27, but I decided to go with the 25 - and I used it!" she said. "I didn't have enough energy to look at my speed while I was climbing but I was out of the seat the whole way."

cheers!

I don't think it has so much to do with the steepness, but more with the fact that it is 2 km's long (phew).

I read the place is called Mt Wallace between Lara & Bacchus Marsh (wherever that is)?

I have a nice climb like that in the morning...did I say nice...damn, must be sick or somehing:D

Climbing rocks....Not as much as TT...It would suck to have to stop on a climb during a race!!!
