It reports that the there will be somewhere between 4,000 and 4,500 metres of altitude gain across the elite men's course. The time trials could also feature some steep ascents.
It's possible that the decision has already been made and the Austrians did seem confident that they will be awarded the race, but the official announcement should be made early next year as far as I know.
Finally seems to be very nice and selective worlds after Firenze because this year was too easy and probably next year will be even worse
