Looks like we could be in for some sort of select sprint, Sagan should like it.

As long as it isn't the middle east they could turn the Scheldeprijs into a WC for all I care.

Pretty disappoting choice considering the depth of options: Sheffield and Halifax would've been far better.

Surely they don't want to make a course for local boy Mark Cavendish, right?

Remember the natural cycle... this years route is quite hard, and there is a big chance of rain :-)

And next year is just insane - so they had probably to do version tilted towards the durable sprinterd/classics rider in yorkshire to pull it home.

The fault lies at the bidding team - they should have waited another year....

Here is the 284,5 km long course. This has Sagan written all over it.

Altitude gain for a lap is xxx mt.
Not sure what is so cool about it, but the distance...

I'd like to see it with all the gradients.

Seems like a blend of 2015 and 2017.

Maybe I **** it up when calculating it... even double that ain't great, but would be okish I guess.

Hardman sprinter and/or Classicman is the winner's profile.

Another chance for the riders that already get a billion chances at a Worlds victory

I swear short circuits are the death of the Worlds.
