Summer Olympics 2016 Rio: Route ITT - men
Wednesday, August 10, 2016 - The route of the individual time trial at the Summer Olympics in Rio is tailor made for climbers. The chrone race is held on a 24.2 kilometres circuit featuring two short climbs. The men are to race the circuit twice and the race totals 54.5 kilometres. Olympic Champion Bradley Wiggins will not be defending his title.
Starting at Praça do Pontal the riders race west to a circuit in the Grumari Natural Park. The 24.2 kilometres round is peppered with two climbs.
First is the Grumari, a 1.2 kilometres climb at 7% with a steepest slope at 13%. 10 Kilometres down the road the Grota Funda appears; at 2.1 kilometres slightly longer, but with an average gradient of 4.5% and a maximum gradient of 6%. As the route features a series of smaller climbs too, each round brings 7.4 uphill kilometres. So basically it’s either uphill or downhill in Rio.
The individual time trial opens with a 2.9 kilometres section taking the riders to the circuit and closes with an almost identical 2.7 kilometres section back to the finish line. This makes for a total of 54 compelling kilometres of racing in the men’s individual time trial of Rio 2016.
