We found a good spot on the side of the rode and I captured a great video of him flying by us probably doing around 15-17 Mph uphill. Nibili ended up winning the day but the overall top three riders kept their positions.
As the race finished we got changed back into our cycling gear to head down the road. We would have to meet the vans at the bottom of the hill. Leaving ...

From that point on the rest of the day ...
