More classic New Mexico roads and scenery is in order for stage 4, and while it may not have the 6000ft of climbing of stage 3’s crusher, it does have the longest sustained mountain climb to the highest elevation. It's a spectacular route through the Black mountains, up and over Emory pass at 2507m, and then an endless decent into one of the great expanses of the American West, traveling into the valley of the famous Rio Grande.
