World Cycling Championships 2017 Bergen, Norway: Route ITT – men

World Cycling Championships 2017 Bergen, NorwayWednesday, 20 September 2017 – The individual time trial at the UCI Road World Championships in Bergen takes place on a hilly route of 31 kilometres. The start is at Festplassen and the finish is on the top of Fløyen, which is one of the seven city mountains in Bergen. It’s a 3.4 kilometres climb at 9.1%.

The ITT at the UCI Road World Championships is played out on a 16.1 kilometres circuit plus the aforementioned closing climb. The entire circuit is raced in the first round. In the second round the riders turn right at kilometre 11.5 to tackle Fløyen.

The circuit is rolling, although the climbs are short and the gradients are modest – 3 to 4%. Yet, the route has another complicating factor in store. Starting at kilometre 11.3, the 700 metres stretch from Kong Oskarsgate (Kong Oscar Street) to halfway down Øvregaten (High Street) is cobbled.

Following the passage at Festplassen the riders race the same roads until they turn right at kilometre 27.6 on Øvregaten to tackle the 3.4 kilometres climb up Fløyen. To weary the legs once more: the first 200 metres are cobbled.

Fløyen peaks at an altitude of 316 metres. The average gradient is 9.1%, while kilometre 3 is steepest at 10.1%. The climb flattens out to 5.5% in the last 400 metres.
