The very challenging Women Elite Individual Time Trial will also start at the Swarovski Crystal Worlds. 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.
