[It’s]Very steep, yeah. But it would be ok as a Time Trial, it’s just with other people in the way, that’s the problem!
And the wall of noise, it’s really cool for us - it’s a bit like Flanders, or the World Championships, in that having all those people there, it’s awesome. That’s what I would like to see the sport have more often, is races on the same day as men’s races. And it’s organised by ASO, who organise the Tour, so it’s a great race, and I’m really looking forward to it from that respect, I’m just worried about the prospect of not doing very well!"
