Interview w/Oskar Svendsen from September 2014: http://www.dagbladet.no/2014/09/18/sport/sykkel/procycling/procyclingno/35331746/ (Norw)
Interview w/Oskar Svendsen from November 2014: http://www.procycling.no/verdensmester-fra-2012-trapper-ned/ (Norw)

The national team coach, Stig Kristiansen, was guest commentator on Eurosport yesterday and talked a little about him: Svendsen has been riding his bike, they are hoping he will come back, there is more to life than cycling and VO2 max.

Kristiansen also said that any rider concidered a climbing talent has a VO2 max of over 90. He mentioned MTB'er Sondre Kristiansen (son of former marathon WR holder Ingrid Kristiansen) and L.P. Nordhaug as having VO2 max of over 90.

Nice. Tomorrow Para-cycling, monday the road race. Is it getting broadcasted by any chance?

And is there a profile? I can only find the map, but there seems to be some sort of hill.

Cheers.

Pretty sure they always do Lookout mountain since it in Chattanooga.

Edit: Looked at map, it is Lookout Mountain, pretty sure it's something like 325-350m elevation gain in 4.0-4.5km.

Doh. :o Totally forgot it has been held in Tennessee. Thanks. So it should be quite an open race, and tourtracker should work.

Hi, I mapped it myself and added arrows and letters. I hope it helps. (it's missing the first 5km of flat, but I'm not entirely sure where the exact start is)

Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

Haha, it looks like there is a lot of hairpin bends. But maybe it's just undulating corners.

Thank You!!

Did you make the map based on your knowledge of the climbs and profile?
I tried myself but it was complicated, lol!
