Indeed. Don't know how they managed to mess it up.

I have always found the Driedaagse de Panne time trial profile hilarious. Flat as a pancake, yet it looks like an Ardennes classic. I'm not sure that traffic bumps need to be represented in a profile.

I don't know how to post photos, unfortunately, but it can be seen here:

That would be this wonderful profile. They really like playing up those speedbumps :D

I forget what year it was. 2008? When people couldn't make sense of the straight line under the race's logo for one of the de Panne stages until somebody found the page on their website for the next stage and realized oh....that straight black line with no context is the profile.

At least they were probably being honest, rather than trying to turn a speedbump into a HC climb...

Well yeah, but we cannot compare length to altitude. 14.5 km in length is nothing compare to that in altitude! :)

Tour of Croatia, stage 2, profile of last 3 kilometres. What the hell?

With two kilometres to go there is a little kicker, where the riders apparently ascend 120 metres and descend it again within 100 metres...

Inexplicable... (and I still don't know how to insert pictures)

Presumably a tunnel, of the kind that always skewed out traceurs' profiles until cronoescalada came along and incorporated a function to let you smooth them out.

Anyway! The best of the 2007 Vuelta profiles, with their inconsistent y-axes and making Cerler look like Aprica. Monachil there is way steeper than the descent and includes 7km @ 9% in the middle.

Also, these two are the same MTF, but the 2005 version made by somebody who understands course profiles is included for comparison.

This year's Tour de Romandie stage 1

That final climb looks like a fine competitor to Zoncolan or Angliru, until you realise that it's actually 11.5km at 5.4%.
