The worst of race profiles

Here's the profile of the Dutch championships from 2014 in Oostmarsum. Looking at the profile, one would expect to visit the Dutch equivalent of the alpes. Bit disappointing to see the highest they got was 69 meter :D
 
Rio Grande do Sul has horizontal and vertical "creativity"



If the horizontal marks don't make any sense, just look at how the riders fall from a 900m cliff and climb it back in the last 1.1 Km

Not to mention the fact that apparently 1470 > 2144 in whatever parallel universe they are living in. :eek:

Must've been one of the most horrible profiles ever.
 
From Nokere Koerse:

What the heck is this? Is the descent %100 percent? :rolleyes:

And this one from Ronde van Drenthe:

So they lose kms while descending the VAM-berg for the first time and climb it back again? If not why the descent between the first two climbs has a glitch? :eek:

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.
