Forecast

A weak airflow accompanied by foehn winds and weather fronts is currently dominating the general weather situation in the Alpine region. These weather conditions are what forecasters are most afraid of; you never know if the foehn or the weather fronts will gain the upper hand! Today, the foehn will probably persist until the evening and it will remain dry.

Tendency

Before Friday, the foehn winds and moderately cloudy and showery weather will persist.

THAT WAS THE UCI ROAD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018

Scroll

22 TO 30 SEPTEMBER 2018

The UCI Road World Championships 2018 are history and have left us with a World Champion from Tyrol, contented athletes who like to look back on the superb atmosphere along the race courses and excellent praise from the many international guests for the perfect organisation of the event.

The success of these World Championships confirmed Innsbruck's status as the sports city of the Alps and clearly demonstrated that the city is also capable of hosting top-class sports events in summer. 600,000 enthusiastic fans cheered on their favourites along the various routes during the nine-day World Championships and experienced world-class sporting achievements up close.
The exuberant festive atmosphere and the perfect organisation received high praise, as did the many fans in Innsbruck, for example from Belgian double Junior World Champion Remco Evenepoel: "Innsbruck-Tyrol will always have a place in my heart. Not only because of the two titles I won here, but also because of the sensational atmosphere during the races. The fans were just incredible."

With 965 athletes from 77 nations, TV coverage in 150 countries, race courses covering total of 1,100 km and almost 1,500 volunteers, the 2018 Road World Championships were the largest sporting event ever held in summer in Tyrol.

ROUTES FROM THE ROAD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

Men Elite Road Race

Date: Sunday, 30.09.2018 Start: Kufstein Finish: Innsbruck / Hofburg          Time: 09:40 - 16:40                                   Total distance: 258.5 km Race distance: 252.9 km Elevation gain: 4.670 m Circuit details: 6 short laps + 1 long lap (84.7 km + 6 short laps 23.8 km + 1 long lap 31 km)   Tickets: www.innsbruck-tirol2018.com/en/tickets   Contact: Innsbruck-Tirol Rad WM 2018 GmbH Website: www.innsbruck-tirol2018.com E-Mail: info@innsbruck-tirol2018.com   Course: Starting from the main square in the centre of Kufstein, this very selective course takes riders through the town and then along the length of the Inn Valley to Innsbruck. Strong riders will look to break away on the section from Schwoich to Bad Häring. From the village of Langkampfen the route leads to Maria Stein, a popular place of pilgrimage. The following Angerberg climb should not be underestimated and will sap the riders’ strength.   After passing through the Seenregion, known for its beautiful lakes, the course remains flat all the way to Schwaz. The first major highlight of the course will be the steep climb to Gnadenwald (max. gradient 14%). From there it is a fast run down from Axams to Innsbruck. Once in the regional capital, riders complete one or several laps of the Olympic Circuit depending on the race. Even before reaching the Olympic Circuit the riders will already have 90 kilometres of tough riding in their legs from Kufstein to Innsbruck. Timetable   Challenge: ► The Angerberg climb and the steep climb to Gnadenwald (max. gradient 14%). ► The Höttinger Höll Climb. Olympic Circuit: The Olympic Circuit starts in the Museumstraße road in the centre of Innsbruck and leads past the Sillpark shopping centre, the Tivoli open-air swimming pool, the Tivoli football stadium (home to the FC Wacker Innsbruck football team) and up to Ambras Castle. It is here that the climb begins in earnest, a 7.9km ascent with a maximum gradient of 10% passing through the villages of Aldrans and Lans on the way to the bottom of the Patscherkofel cable car.   After cresting the climb near the bottom station of the Patscherkofel cable car, riders turn right and descend at high speed through the villages of Igls and Vill, past the Bergisel ski jump to the Tivoli football stadium, over the Olympiabrücke bridge and into the centre of the city. There they pass the victory arch, ride along the main shopping thoroughfare and into the oldtown. From the Golden Roof, Innsbruck’s most recognisable attraction, the course continues over the Innbrücke bridge up through the very narrow Höttinger Gasse road to the Höttinger Platzl square, where riders turn right and descend once again down through the Riedgasse road to the finish in front of the Hofburg imperial palace.   Höttinger Höll climb After completing the seventh and final lap of the Olympic Circuit, the Men Elite Road Race riders head back into the city but don’t turn right as usual into the Riedgasse road, instead heading left up towards the Höttinger Höll climb.   This is set to be the section of the course where the Men Elite Road Race will be decided: a short but sharp 3.2km climb with an average gradient of 11.5% and a maximum gradient of 28%. From the top of the climb the riders speed down a fast and technical descent to the finish line in front of the Hofburg imperial palace in the centre of the city.
