Innsbruck-Tirol Rad WM 2018 GmbH
The race begins at the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens. The course is a classic but very hilly time trial with a total distance of 20km. The first seven kilometres are flat, followed by a steep climb from Mils to Absam with 100 vertical metres of elevation gain. Thanks to the wide roads the course is not particularly technical, but pacing the effort correctly will be essential.
The final section is a fast run into the finish through several villages to the east of Innsbruck offering great views of the city and its Olympic Village. The race concludes in front of the Hofburg imperial palace in the city centre.
