Anyone done it? Thinking of entering this year. How long did it take you and what gearing did you need for it? I'm sure it killer (17% grade!!!) Gragus did it at 31kph last year, psycho!!

Here is the race flyer for the event. My team Tri State Velo is promoting the event. I've never ridden it but have gone to it a few times and it is a great event. Great spectators and a great change to ride a part of the course.

I've ridden the hill many times on my rides and it is a pretty killer hill climb but I wouldn't switch out to any special gearing.

If you have more questions I can talk to some people on the team and see what they would suggest.
