September 28/13 8:57 am - Road Worlds: Women's Road Race UPDATES

Posted by Editoress on 09/28/13

Starting in Montecatini Terme with 140.5km ahead of them, the riders will cover a relatively flat 57.2km before the race really starts with the first of five, 16.6km, laps through Florence that includes the category three Fiesole climb.

The climb approximately 4.5km long with an average gradient of 5.1%, which ramps up significantly in certain areas to about 10%. In total, the riders will take in 22.5km of climbing with 1,097 metres in elevation before the finish of the race, so a lot of splintered groups approaching the final laps is a given.

Over the top of the main climb comes a smooth, but technical, descent that will require concentration from everyone as they take the corners at speed. The finish line comes just after a short descent and is fairly flat approaching the line, so it could be a very fast end.

We will be doing regular updates on Twitter
