I've noticed a tendency for the Tour of Denmark to maybe... exaggerate a little bit...

They even have a buffet! Now I'm surprised how Betancur didn't ever showed up in this race.

Here's the profile of the Dutch championships from 2014 in Oostmarsum. Looking at the profile, one would expect to visit the Dutch equivalent of the alpes. Bit disappointing to see the highest they got was 69 meter :D

They can't even ride 10 km's without having to eat during the ride?

Rio Grande do Sul has horizontal and vertical "creativity"

Image

If the horizontal marks don't make any sense, just look at how the riders fall from a 900m cliff and climb it back in the last 1.1 Km

What ? The distance on the profile between 103km and 153 is the same than between 153 and 172, a bit strange :confused:

Not to mention the fact that apparently 1470 > 2144 in whatever parallel universe they are living in. :o

Must've been one of the most horrible profiles ever.

In all honesty, they are bad but the official profiles are very different:

From Nokere Koerse:

What the heck is this? Is the descent %100 percent? :rolleyes:

And this one from Ronde van Drenthe:
Image
So they lose kms while descending the VAM-berg for the first time and climb it back again? If not why the descent between the first two climbs has a glitch? :o

Love the Nokere Koerse profile. Looks... difficult.

RvD is just minimalistic.
