|the one with the 22% grade at the end, with a short bit at 27%, Paul Sherwin said Stefano Garzelli was using a 30/30!!
Being 6'5" and 220lbs, I want no part of any 22% grade climb. I was thinking of buying a TDF King of the Mountains jersey, kind of as a joke, but I don't think many people would get it.

|Don't forget last year's Vuelta... on the Angrilu climb some riders were spotted sporting triples just to get over it. That's gotta be a sick climb when top Spanish Pro's, known for their climbing, are sporting triples to get over the hill.

|Heras rode a triple for the Angliru (I'd guess 30/25). Danilo Di Luca (9th place in the stage iirc) was doing a diary for cyclingnews.com. He said he used a double with 38/30 low, and wished he had even lower.|
