|I didn't hear much controversy about gearing for this fabled climb. Remember in last year's Vuelta when the riders were going to MTB cassettes and triple rings to conquer the Angliru? I don't here as much talk about that with L'Alpe d'Huez. Does it have the +20% grades like some of the other feared mountains?|

|If it were really steep, drafting would not be important. These guys are drafting all the time.

|I didn't think you could get smaller than a 38t on a standard road double (130mm BCD)? I know, I have tried.
Wonder how he is doing a double crankset, with a 36t? Custom?

|FSA makes carbon pro cranks in compact with 50/34. I believe they're one of CSC sponsors.|
