Stage 4, begins in Livermore, takes the riders up and over Mt. Hamilton, then down into San Jose and finishes with a brutal climb up Sierra Road or as their website puts it, "Stage 4 is short, at just 81 miles, but what it lacks in distance it makes up with three grueling climbs. Two of the climbs are legendary in California lore." The Sierra Road Portion is 3.5 miles at a 10% grade (1759 ft climb). Fun to watch and honestly, these guys didn't look all that tired. Just another ride in the park.
