- Herald Sun Tour 2018 - Stage 3
Estaban Chaves attacked with 18 kilometres remaining on the steep parts of the climb and rode clear of a quickly reducing peloton. On the top he had almost 1 minute advantage on the second best rider.
The average gradient of this climb might give you the sense that you’re in for a reasonably easy ride. And to some extent that’s true … once you get past the tough opening section. Rising sharply out of the fire-affected town of Marysville, the first 4.5km of this climb ascend at a painful 8% before a more gentle gradient takes you to the summit.
Lake Mountain still bears the scars of the devastating Black Saturday bushfires of February 2009 but you’ll still appreciate the great views that are available throughout the climb.
