Route Description

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

It begins in Innsbruck on a flat road which crosses the Sill River then heads beneath the Inntal Autobahn overpass before hitting the big climb. At 7.4km (4.6 miles) with an average grade of 5.4%, the Innsbruck climb is similar to Watopia’s Epic KOM in terms of difficulty.

Enjoy the descent, but don’t rest too much: you’ve still got a sprint coming! Head back into town and see if you can make the leaderboard for the sprint along the Inn River (the town’s namesake) before crossing the finish line.

UCI RACE DETAILS

At the UCI Worlds race, the men’s elite racers began in Kufstein and ride 84.7km to Innsbruck, where they covered this circuit 7 times. And if that wasn’t painful enough, the final circuit (not part of the Zwift’s Innsbruck course at this time) was a modified one which included an additional climb featuring 25% gradients! Spain’s Alejandro Valverde won the 2018 UCI Worlds Elite race from a final pack sprint of four riders. See the finish >

What would be a good bike/wheel selection for this route? and Epic KOM for that matter? Perhaps Venge Pro + Enve 7.8.. or lighter with SuperSix Evo + Zipp 454?
