Yeah, shameless hometown favouritism. But it's a nice challenge for Tony M.

I don't perceive the courses like this, it's ridiculous to use such a climb in the Worlds' TT. As for a RR it would be good to use this climb if only it won't be a mtf

Yeah, because Cancellara and Tony Martin don't get enough courses thrown in their favour right?

It's about time for a non-flat tt, now we at least won't know who will win unlike other years.

that

also such hard parcours for the worlds will completely change the GT scenario for the entire year, i mean who in his right mind will peak for the tour and then go onto vacation when the worlds suit them so well?

maybe even andy tries to peak again after july!!! i mean can you even imagine that?

I think is gonna be a really nice ITT, with 30 Km really flat and, no many bents and after that this climb (firt part of Morredero Climb) to compesate it.

Nobody is going to know the podium in avance like this year
