Summer Olympics 2021 Tokyo: Route ITT - men
Wednesday 28 July - The individual time trial for men at the Olympic Games of Tokyo amounts to 44.2 kilometres, while the vertical gain is 846 metres. The hilly route features two identical laps.
The start ramp is located at the Fuji International Speedway. The riders set off at high speeds as the first section runs downhill. After leaving the race track, the first climb appears at kilometre 5. It is an uphill of 5 kilometres with an average gradient of almost 4.5%.
Straight after the descent the riders re-enter the Fuji International Speedway. The tarmac is once again challenging gravity with a 4.5% slope. The uphill then levels out before a rolling section of more than 2 kilometers runs to the passage on the line.
The second lap is exactly the same. At 846 metres, the ITT’s total vertical gain is 200 metres less than at the Summer Olympics in Rio 2016. The distance is shorter, too – 54.5 kilometres in Rio, 44.2 kilometres in Tokyo.
Fabian Cancellara won the gold medal in the ITT event of the Olympics in Rio, finishing 47 seconds ahead of Tom Dumoulin with Chris Froome 15 seconds further behind.
The first rider starts at 14.00 and the last rider is expected to finish around 17.30 – both are local times (JST).
