Got a nice little formula from a friend the other day.
[ H2 / 10D ]
where H = height difference in meters,
and D = distance traveled in meters)

Very Nice.
My Col de Pilot ranks a measly 2.4.
The ride planned for November.... 6.4, which if it was in Colorado, it would be the 3rd toughest climb in the state.
BTW the site where I got this is Colorado Bicycle Climbs.
Might just break this down and try to compile this info for my island/state.

2005 TDF Picks.

Ok... So I'm posting this a bit late. (list created prior to the start of le Tour)
  1. Armstrong. Yes it will be a miracle, but I think he's got the commitment, focus and desire.
  2. Ullrich. Always the brides made
  3. Vinokourov
  4. Basso
  5. Beloki
  6. Heras
I'm not really trying to predict a winner, or the order, but this is how I see it playing out.
Dang that Boonen is just an amazing sprinter!
