I can only applaud Van Dutch's summary of one of the toughest rides this little Smokkelaar has ever come up against. The Alma was truly a monster to rival any SA climb.
For the numbers. The Alma is 600m of 17% + 200m of 19% solid climbing ... but these climbs come at the end of 3km of pretty solid climbing. Crazy stuff.
Time in the saddle was 4hrs30 - 5hrs and we averaged 18.5km/h for the journey of 87km.
