The Classic 150km

There are 8 key climbs - many of them longer than is usual on a sportive, 5 climbs are over 2km long (5km+ for the longest) and all 8 gain around 100m or more (269m for the highest).

Notable/notorious climbs include Abbey-cwn-Hir, the Elan Valley and Glascwm - the leg-breaking 25% ramp just after 100km.
