‘#sadomaso’ – The toughest climb in cycling?

Stage six of the Tirreno Adriatico featured two climbs of the Muro di Sant’Elpidio. Not the highest climb the peloton will face this year, but arguably the steepest with several riders resorting to pushing their bikes up the climb.

Race organisers admitted that the climb may have been too much citing ‘losing half of your peloton’ as realisation that ‘mistakes’ had been made. The riders were more pointed in their comments with Fabian Cancellara describing the stage as ‘sadomaso’ (sado-masochism) and Alberto Contador summing up his thoughts as ‘Ufff!’

The clip currently showing on VCSE’s YouTube channel has the best (or worst?) bits.
