Froome and company ascended quickly the last part of the 181km from Jaen to Capileira, whereas we mortal people suffer going up all the way from Orgiva at some 450m elevation to Capileira at some 1500m in only 20km.

Last saturday we spotted a group of bikers who came from Granada, went up to the Veleta (3372m) passed the Mulhacen (3492m) and then came down to Capileira to pass Lanjaron to get back to Granada.
