Sign up to the GCN newsletter: While Mallorca might be better known for beautiful, meandering climbs like Sa Calobra, Puig Major and Col de Soller, Lasty did some research to find what is probably the hardest on the entire island. This can only mean one thing - the return of the suffer meter and the inimitable pain face of Tom Last. Watch more on GCN...

  1. Love the Suffer Meter!
  2. in Italy we have a climb called sdruzzinà in Trentino Alto Adige it's 11 km with 12% average gradient 23% max gradient i don't know how much it is the elevation but i know he finish at sega di ala at 1215 meter
  3. This is longer, and steeper, I think, up where the squillionaires live.
    Carrer Albercuix, 6
    07013 Son Vida, Illes Balears
    39.597659, 2.585404
  4. We climbed this in Spring 2016, it's VERY steep. I blistered my front tubular coming back down it was so hot.
  5. Yeah, the suffer fest seems alright but the music is lacking in its death throws. How about matching Lasty to the adagio piece by Albinoni or Handel of sorts? Needs more drama!
  6. Could Lasty please show us how to tackle Rosedale Chimneys in North Yorkshire? #epicclimb
  7. Video does such a terrible job showing hill gradient while cycling. it's hard to give non cyclists a true idea of how hard this is.
  8. I get exhausted watching Lasty cycling up those climbs. His face says a thousand words
  9. Hahaha how do you guys draw straws for these climbs and Tom just has terrible luck, or is he just a glutton for pain?
  10. I feel as if it is not a democracy in the GCN presenters as poor old lasty always seems to be the one suffering!
  11. come on guys send him to mauna kea -- you know you want to
  12. possible sub title to this series......Can lasty last
  13. We are missing Power HR and Gradient guys cmon! Next time?
  14. Loving the Lasty Suffer Series. Would love to see an onscreen power/HR/suffer score data too, and of course an upload to a dedicated Strava account at the end of it...
  15. what do you eat or drink to get through something like that.. what do you eat the night before and in the morning?
  16. What a lucky bunch the GCN presenters are. Get to travel to all the best places doing something they really enjoy. And presumably get paid for it!
  17. always nice to have some "supportive" colleagues. #malicious pleasure :p
  18. Lasty suffers better than anyone I know...
  19. Real-time heart-rate info would be great on these videos. Power info too if possible
  20. awesome climb and great background music!
