Animated “2015 UCI Worlds Course” Route Details (Richmond) Map
Animated map provided by ZwiftHacks

The Richmond UCI Worlds route is a replica of the 2015 UCI Road World Championships course in Richmond, Virginia, USA. It was at this race where Peter Sagan famously attacked on 23rd Street to eventually win his first World Champs jersey. It’s a wonderful race course, with very flat first half and a nice mix of attackable climbs on the back half. Additionally, this map was refreshed in February 2020, giving it a fresh look and modern feel!

Route Description

Route profile by ZwiftHub – the place to plan and track your route achievements!

The route begins on flat roads, taking riders through two sprint points: first the Monument Avenue sprint, then the Broad Street sprint. In terms of distance, this flat portion lasts for half of the route.

A long descent signals the start of the lumpier second half of the route. Riders will quickly arrive on the cobbles of famous Libby Hill – a twisty, punchy climb which will certainly put hurt in the legs and gaps in the peloton!

The 23rd Street KOM follows soon afterward – a short, straight, steep climb. Can you attack like Sagan and stay away?

Keep your speed up into the descent, then it’s a long, slow climb up to the false flat straightaway to the finish. The final kilometer is always a slugfest, and often the riders who go hard early are reeled back in when they run out of steam. Have you got what it takes?
