My god!!! TDF mountain TT.Largo

Over 5000' of climbing in 32km, that is evil.
LA averaged 54kmh over the flat section of the TDS mountain TT.
Gotta hand it to the man, he's a machine.

The "flat" section in the TdS TT was actually a slight downhill, leading towards the climb. Having said that his actual climb was pretty mad. Can't wait for the similar TdF stage.

LA was also riding an aero TT bike on the "flat" section, then he switched to his climbing TT bike for the remainder of the stage. He must have been screaming on that bike from the start line to the bottom of the climb to produce that average speed for the whole TT.

The Uphill TT is the day after the climb to Alp'duez. 4 Hors Catagorie climbs. The strategy question for the leaders is going to be to decide which day to ride hard. Which day can they make up the most time. Should be interesting.
