Vegni can't change the Como route because is almost set in stone but when the finish is in Bergamo he just go nuts trying to make it an almost mountain stage where only climbers can contest, something that even Zomegnan never dared to do.
 
Lombardia was a great race in recent editions, with big winners and agressive cycling, so why do they change the course again? I will miss the Madonna del Ghisallo. On the other hand I also like that mur of Bergamo with the Italian cobbles, so we'll see what it gives.

Just like in Imola the men and the women will ride the same ITT course at the WC in Wollongong next year. They will do two laps for a total distance of 37.7 km. That is a record distance for the women, but a 40 minute effort isn't much for the men. One reason for this (I assume) is that they are going to hold both races on the opening Sunday, which I think is a good idea, but still a WC ITT should take at least 45 minutes to complete for the winner of the men's race.

The men's RR will apparently be 271 km long finishing with 12 laps on an easy 17.5 km circuit, so even an out of shape Ewan might be able to contest it ;)

There will also be crowned a women's U23 champion for the first time, though it will just be the first in the age category to finish the elite race, which means that someone might win both titles. Hopefully a seperate U23 race will be on the program in 2023.

Weird they don't have the men do three laps then. But of course not surprising, I don't think we'll see a 1h+ WCTT again.
