Hey all, I’m looking to do something crazy this weekend. I’m wanting about a 30-40 minute climb that I can do every 4 hours for 48 hours. I think Epic KOM is a good target for me, but what route should I choose to get to the Epic KOM segment the fastest? Three Sisters? 3 Sisters, would have me ride 10Km before even starting the climb. Is there a faster way to get there?

I’m told fastest access (least flats) to a good climb is Epic KOM from Road to Sky. Start Road to Sky and immediately u-turn. Your at the base of Epic KOM and Radio Tower extension.

Hello, quick question, in the picture on top of the article, there is a white and blue gate with the head of an animal (probably a chamois),,, the other day, after climbing the Ven-top, a temporary jersey appeared while riding (with those colors and the head of chamois),
I had a look at temp jersey but didn’t find why I had it, could you help me with that? Tks!

Would the tarmac pro with lightwheigt wheels be the fastest up or the tron bike with the consideration of some declines during the epic kom segment?

You list the elevation gain for the Epic KOM as 1361′, as does the Everesting calculator, BUT the Strava segment says 1196′. Any idea why?
