Your battle with Paul is going to end up putting all the good climbs out of reach for me!
I almost blacked out at the top of vandiver... big chainring from bottom to top. Could neither pedal nor see straight until about halfway down the descent.
That's what i like to hear! I always say that aren't pushing it hard enough till you black out!
