Uphill what now? Looking forward to this! :-D
I think you have been sandbagging for some time now.. About time you come out of your shell!!
I think that just barely beats out Mt Washington auto road in vertical, though Mt Washington's been done in less than 40mins (by a doper)
those mavics r the hill killer, want one 😭😭😭😭
So the VAM is around 1450? The climb isn't steep enough: 3-4% grades are VAM-killers. Lanier: it's climbing in AN HOUR, not in 40 minutes.
Dang. With these stats, i think you could be world tour
Come out East and do Mt. Washington, my friend and fellow rider won it the last two years - at 41 yrs old. That's a tough climb.
Wow! Nice climb. Looks very steep.
You are totally awesome!
Agreed Daniel. Can you email me the climb you're talking about? Philgaimon@gmail
Richard Forzani - Phil Gaimon has won that even twice (08 & 09) back when he was just getting started with his professional career.
Ha yeah roger if it's not on strava it didn't happen :)
Good God!! Feeling a bit "genki" today Phil Gaimon ? That looks pretty awesome👍🚴
Really impressive stuff. Man i hate that downhill after that climb.
Your truly on a mission!!! Wow
That photo almost makes me miss living in LA!
Good God, man. Lots of 1700-1800 VAM in there.
Is this trying to see what the most elevation one could get in an hour?
This is awesome!
400W beast mode engaged.
Phil Gaimon When are you taking the Chantry KOM?!
Recon mission at 400W for an hour. Why are you retired again?
Unbelievable Phil Gaimon. Would have been interesting to have measured your VO2 max right before retirement and now because with those kind of VAM numbers my guess is you haven't lost significant numbers? If I am wrong about it there is no hope for mere mortals...or maybe you had a power breakfast?!
Awesome Phil!!! Great effort and I'm sure in not exactly ideal conditions probably pretty darn cold!!
Jesus Phil Gaimon and your "retired" good god !
Damn it Phil! Down to 3rd place on Mt. Baldy Road now!
Go Phil, go!!!
Sweet Phil ain't playing😄😄
6.0 Watts/ kilos for an hour? This is amazing. i quit cycling
It's much nicer going up Glendora Mountain and Ridge Road...
It's crazy to think that this was just a recon ride for the real thing.
That is just too cool. I last did that ride back in 1975 - from the Claremont Colleges. Lightweight 1" clinchers were a new thing, and we blew out all our tires on the way down due to heat. These days I would fly down on disc brakes. It's a different universe, but the song is still the same.
Over 1,100 riders up Baldy...and you're 11% faster than 2nd place. Insane.
#CookieMode is the new thing now! wowzers
I salute you, brother.
400 watts avg. for an hour?! #unretire
Monday is KO F'ing M Day. Wow
Ha, "so I didn't have to ride down" doing the reverse shuttle!
Come to Eldorado and Hughes park show us what you can do on the flats! LOLOL
