World Cycling Championships 2018 Innsbruck, Austria: Route ITT – men
Wednesday, 26 September 2018 - At 54.2 kilometres, the individual time trial at the Worlds in Innsbruck is a tough challenge. The route takes in an altitude gain of 654 metres, while the hardest climb is the one up to Gnadenwald, that's crested at kilometre 32.5. The 4.9 kilometres slope is averaging 7.1%.
The riders roll off the start ramp in Rattenberg, a village that’s included in the road race, too. Following a flat prelude of approximately 2 kilometres the riders tackle the first climb. The route goes up at 4.3% for 3 kilometres and after passing through Reith im Alpbachtal they drop back down to the Inn Valley to follow the river upstream until Wattens.
In Wattens the route crosses the Inn to go uphill without delay. The climb up 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%. The climb flattens out before the top.
After passing through Gnadenwald there are 16.5 kilometres remaining until the finish line on the Rennweg in Innsbruck. The first 6.5 kilometres are on descent, while the last 10 kilometres of the ITT at the World Cycling Championships in Austria are on gently rolling terrain.
