Would be nice to see more of Copenhagen. It seems mostly parkland & housing estates.

Very interesting music choices.

Maybe we'll get to see some of Copenhaguen after all, I'm not exactly sure how to understand this:

hmmm, if there was not that uphill finish section it would be disappointing route (disappointing means "for Cav" ), but now it could be any powerful sprinter (Thor, Tyler, Tom...). For hilly classic riders it's too short ascent.

They start at Copenhagen city hall and head north to Rudersdal to join the circuit.

Anyway, the course looks more or less like I expected it to be. Maybe a little hillier even. Like always, it doesn't have to be a mass sprint.

The Elite Men's Road Race starts at the City Hall Square in central Copenhagen before heading towards the 14 km circuit, which is placed in the municipality of Rudersdal, north of Copenhagen. It's a pretty area, but obviously not very challenging, hill-wise. At least not for seasoned pro's.

The Time Trials, though, are more Copenhagen based. So there'll be plenty of sights of the actual city.

Here's the official homepage of the event.

And here's a promotion video with a short glimpse of (parts of) the TT route and highlights from the final stage of Tour of Denmark 2010, finishing on the Worlds circuit.

I don't think it's terrible to have a flat-ish worlds course every few years, and don't think that Cav is a sure thing either. Remember that this time last year we were all certain he would win in Australia.

Well, I'm sure Cavendish will be amongst the ones battling it out for the win if he participates

Obviously a slighty uphill finish benefit some of the other top sprinters, and "The Dish" might be hanicapped by a less-than-stellar leadout train - I mean, it's not exactly the HTC train perfected to put him in an almost unbeatable position.

Thor might make the double WC next year actually. But I'm rooting for Breschel, Freire or Sagan
