With all due respect to the astonishing power and anaerobic strength of Radio Shack’s Lance Armstrong and Garmin-Transitions Dave Zabriskie, these are twelve of the hundreds of highly skilled climbers that beat them up the mountain in stage four of the Tour of California.
Now, honestly we do have to admit that they had a head start up that steep grade — like an hour or so. But let’s not split hairs or confuse the issue. The fact remains that they beat the top stars up the climb. Twisted Spoke congratulates them all.
