Did anyone watch the KOM?

    Hard route, but probably not the hardest 14k he's ever earned. For the Women, many don't earn that in a year. I guess anyone can enter? Would be fun.

    saw this on facebook.. I've seen this mentioned on articles about massive strava segments.. if this was done as part of a tour to the country and logistics arranged for you id be interested in doing something like this myself.

    I think the GCN lot did it?

    I think they did, and I think they may have been riding Factor bikes :-)

    I believe to enter the autumn event you have to either be invited like Nibs, Pooley, Cuddles, Lichtenberg or set a good time in the spring sportif.

    I'm going to organize my own KOM in Europe next spring, similar distance, similar climb, if anyone is in?
