Murrieta - Greater Palm Springs 199.7 km
Another big climbing day. A new fierce finishing climb, the Tram Way climb in Palm Springs, should make for big timegaps with it's 6 kms at 9,5%. Add to that another day of expected heat in California and you have the makings of a brutal day.
Honorary Levi of the Day: Haimar Zubeldia
Not a metric shit-ton of climbers to pick from here. How about Mr Anonymous steps out of the shadows and actually wins one?
