2795m climbing, 112km, 9 hours, a 30 minute bottlenecck, with a peak temperature of 40 degrees. We now know the meaning of the word EPIC and no doubt we’ll have an even greater understanding of the word in the days to come. Christoph Sauzer (part of leading team) has done a few epics and said that today was the hardest stage that he has ever raced in all his Epics. That made us feel better. A lot better. The hot shower, massage, and food also worked wonders. There were some tough climbs today – climbs that actually made CamelToes “Big Daddy” ride in the Valley seem like a warm-up. Serious!Anyway, time for bed!..
