Forecast

A warm airflow accompanied by foehn winds has established over the Alps! Whereas powder snow fans will surely not be happy about this, those who do not like the cold will be delighted. All day, we will see a friendly mix of sunshine and a few clouds. Temperatures will remain mild.

Tendency

The foehn winds will not persist. On Friday night, they will weaken and on Saturday, they will die away! At the same time, light showers will start to fall.

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.

The riders initially head in an easterly direction through the villages of Kolsass and Weer, where they cross the Inn river. Wind conditions will play an important role here. Passing the village of Fritzens, riders reach the first climb in Baumkirchen.   From the village of Mils the course is identical to that of the Women Juniors Individual Time Trial, meaning riders must also contend with the tough climb from Mils to Absam. The final push to the finish is a rolling section through a series of villages to the east of Innsbruck (Absam, Thaur, Rum, Arzl and Mühlau) before riders reach the regional capital itself, where the race finishes in front of the Hofburg imperial palace. Timetable   Challenge: ► A steep climb from Mils to Absam with 100 vertical metres of elevation gain.

This punishing section will see the riders climb 350 vertical metres before reaching a plateau in Gnadenwald, where they pass the second intermediate time split. Through the villages of Absam, Thaur, Rum, Arzl and Mühlau the course then leads down into Innsbruck and the finish line in front of the Hofburg imperial palace.
