Alberto Contador’s Recon Ride for the Giro 2011
I think the mountain stages in the Giro d’Italia (Tour of Italy) have become harder than the Tour de France. Alberto Contador is training using a 34 x 32 !!! That is just nuts ! That means the climb must be crazy steep. Think of the steepness of Twynn Rivers for 10kms straight up. Wow ! Then there's the treacherous descent down the monte Zoncolan which has parts of it not paved ! At what point are they going to stop this madness ? Contador says you have to see it to believe it.
