World Cycling Championships 2018 Innsbruck, Austria: Route ITT – men

World Cycling Championships 2018 ITT for menWednesday, 26 September 2018 - Amounting to 52.5 kilometres, the individual time trial at the Worlds in Innsbruck takes in an altitude gain of almost 500 metres. The route features one proper climb, that's crested at kilometre 30.5. The 4.9 kilometres slope is averaging 7.1%.

The riders roll down the start ramp in Rattenberg, a village that’s also included in the road race, too. The riders follow the Inn Valley until they cross the river in the village Weer. The route continues on the flat for a few kilometres and in Fritzens, with 30 kilometres done, the route starts to point uphill. The climb to Gnadenwald amounts to 4.9 kilometres, while the average gradient is 7.1%. The second and third kilometre are steepest with grades hardly falling below 10%.

After the riders reach the actual summit the route continues false flat to Gnadenwald. Still 16.2 kilometres remaining until the finish line on the Rennweg in Innsbruck.

Following the descent the route hits a short false flat with 8.8 kilometres out, although no rider will notice it as they just came down the descent. Yet, an 800 metres section at 4% with 6.6 kilometres to go may hurt. The rest of the route is flat.
