The last 4.5 climb of each round features four short climbs: E-main street (350 metres at 6%), Libby Hill Park (250 metres at 7.6%), 23rd Street (260 metres at 11%) and Governor Street (290 metres at 6.9%). The last climb turns into a false flat (1%) for the final 700 metres.
Riders who are at ease in the Tour of Flanders are the ones with the best chances to win Richmond. Think the likes of Greg Van Avermaet, Niki Terpstra and Flanders title-holder Alexander Kristoff.
