Vertical speed

The lead gaggle has done it. They've connected with the rocky slopes and are working their way up. If you click on an athlete's profile you can see their 'vertical speed'. This is a measure of how strong the lift is. On these slopes they have 2m/s thermals - they carry athletes skywards 120 metres a minute. Keep an eye on this vertical speed of your favourite athletes as they move further into the mountains.
