The NY Times coverage of the tour has been excellent as usual. However I would like to make a suggestion when reporting the mountain stages. You generally show a cross section map of the climbs with the altitude of the tops recorded in feet. Although altitude is of some interest, I would like to suggest you show the vertical of the climb. Climbing to 1000 meters is no big deal if you start from 900 meters. But if you start from sea level.........!
Thanks for covering a sport I love.
