Last year before 3 peak I did the exact ride. Last year I did the climb 1 hr 6. This year 1 hr flat. I'm stoked! Gain time all over the climb but mainly on the bottom steep stuff.
Great ride. I was 100 m behind you for the last 5km and could not make the gap ... push me all the way.
I saw you ahead since the end of the steep stuff not be able to catch you until the gradient getting less. Good climbing!
