They have ridden 80miles and still have 20 to go. There have been four mountains so far and one more to go. Two of the four mountains have been second category and the other 2 are the next highest . The final climb is classified the highest category and goes up to 1700meters and is like 7% grade but goes to 10% for the final 5k. There have been like 3 crashes . One rider crashed twice another went off the road and over the bars and prob broke his nose. The decent was probably the scariest part for the cars and motorcycles accompanying the riders. They were going 55mph.
All the big names are right beside each other. Good close competion. Race still could go to any of like 6guys

They ended up riding for 5.25hrs
