i was invited to attend yesterday’s press launch of the 2013 Taiwan Cyclist Federation ‘Tawian KOM Challenge’ that will take place this year on November the 9th.
this event goes from 0m to 3275m, from the ocean in Hualien city up to the top of Mt. Wuling. the last 8km is 17.9% average! it is brutal!
coming this year are two former Grand Tour KOM winners (TBA soon) and several very good climbers from around the world. should be a cracker!
here’s the TV release, featuring yours truly!
