For the Road Races the concept is delightfully simple: The first rider to cross the finish line at Festplassen becomes the Road Race world champion. There will be some spectacular battles for the mythical rainbow jersey.
The course invites to an aggressive type of racing, where the strongest riders must use Salmon Hill to gain a decisive lead back to the fastest sprinters of the peloton. The exhaustion will build up gradually in the riders’ legs, and towards the final part of the race the strengths of the very best will appear for the observant spectator. A strong team will be essential, and cooperation between the fellow countrymen can be determined for the outcome of the race.
