|I could be wrong but I think it's around 14K feet of climbing in stage 13. Enough to put us mere mortal's into an ambulance to be sure.
Anybody know if that number is correct?

|the way I figured it out (math king that I am) is that the six climbs on tomorrow's stage constitute 3857.6 vertical meters. That's 49k at 7.87%. That only counts the rated climbs and doesn't account for slight up-hill they'll be riding whenever they're in a "flat" section (as you'll see by the picture below (providing it works, if not go to "www.letour.fr" and checkl out the "dynamic profile"|

I think I'll go hack up a lung for some sympathy pains.
