  1. Fat Ullrich much better than super climbing talent Quitana! :D

    1. Probably would make sense for you to watch Ullrich's ride up Arcalis. Anyone calling him fat in that Tour didn't watch it.

      Not troubled that this was one of the fastest times ever, ridden in a hailstorm, beating several top times by known dopers?

      The peloton is doped as always.

      The record set by Jan Ullrich on the final 10.0 km of the ascent to Arcalis in 1997 was, in fact, 22:55 (NOT 24:55 as stated above), at an average speed of 27.5 km/h.

      The same year (1997), Pantani and Virenque rode it in 23:36 (NOT 26:03).

      In 2009, Contador rode it in 25:22 (NOT 26:53).

    3. All the times are verified. 27.50 km/h is not possible anyway on such a climb. Not even in 1997.
      22:55 might be a correct time but not from my starting point.
