    Great vid. Thanks for sharing. Man are you ever “hammering” in some parts. Good for new cyclists to show the importance of motor pacing and how not only how difficult its for both you the rider and the “motor pacer.”

    What fun!
    I used that My Morning Jacket album the last couple of years while riding rollers in the winter.
    Thanks

    Ah yes, Sant Hilari, a beautiful 24k climb out of Angles, and then at least 4 superb pastry shops in town when you hit the top. My group had a villa between Girona and Angles Last July – that was by far the favourite loop. Also Olot.
