    Cheakamus Challenge elevation profile?

    Anyone know of where to find an elevation profile for last year's or this year's Cheakamus Challenge course? I'm curious about about the length/dificulty of the climbs in the last 20-30k? I was going to ride the course but probably won't have time. Any input out there?

    They don't have a profile posted but they have a detailed route topo map

    The latest version of Google Earth (5.2) plots elevation profiles, so you can layout the path in Google Earth, save it, and then right click on the saved name and have it display an interactive elevation profile. Just be warned that it doesn't understand bridges, so it assumes you're riding to the bottom of river ravines and climbing up the other side. That will throw the maximum slope calculations off.
