A few words on the course:
After a first, flat three kilometres on the Via Vignalunga, the road turns on a gentle descent of a little more than two kilometres into the village of Capolago.
The riders will then keep their momentum on a flat road between Capolago and Riva San Vitale on the shores of Lake Lugano for almost two kilometres before the first uphill stretch starts, lasting 700 metres. This marks the return of the course towards Mendrisio.
After a further level section and a gentle one kilometre false flat, a tough 650 m ascent follows in the village of Rancate, including gradients of up to 10 percent. The last six kilometres back to the finish will take place on long straight roads with only a few uphill sections.
Another important information: The final part of the TT is identical to the last kilometre of the road race on Sunday.
