don’t believe that the effect of length is as great as many seem to believe . It’s certainly a factor, I don’t wish to dismiss it, but not as large as one might first thing. For example, when the Tour did the time-trial on Alpe d’Huez in 2004, the climbing times of all the main riders was only just marginally faster than when the same climb was done at the end of a 200km stage (all the other times in that list above). Similarly, long climbs like the Tourmalet and Mont Ventoux are climbed only a few percent slower than the shorter climbs, and so while length plays a role, and would account for some of Contador’s record ascent rate, it’s not as simple as saying “shorter equals faster”.
