Etape gradients and distance calculations

The spreadsheet data below is taken from the Datameister's Mapmyride Etape 2008 route and gives a breakdown of the gradient roughly every 1/3 km and an estimate of the total ascent, this is bit more than the Mapmyride estimate, I don't know why given I am using exactly the same source data.

Map My Ride calculation is not done every 1/3km, but over a longer interval, therefore an up and down are netted off 8-)

I reckon 3521m of climb is pretty accurate, and watch out for the climb after about 30km. That's the one on the Rapha review of the route, I think.
