    L’Etape du California Peter Rinde Sure, strictly speaking, L’Etape du Ca is not a typical race.  The overall event is timed, and this year, included a climb famously known as the ‘Rock Store’ climb in its 4 loops of a 22 mile route along Mulholland.  The climb was fairly tough at 7.3% average grade for 2.3...
