I am interested in climb rates of serious cyclists thereby giving myself some inspiration and target times. This particular route is a single mountain stage of 65km riding distance and total climb height of 2300m (final elevation 2720m). Three ups and downs (+/-8 to 10%) in the first 12km and more or less constant climb of approx 8 to 10% thereafter. For the serious cyclists and assuming ideal cycling conditions with very little wind, what would you consider a good time to cover this stage?
