World Championships for students

The opening ceremony of the bicycling Worlds for students is set to take place on May 21, in Nijmegen, Netherlands. The road events are scheduled for May 23 (time trial) and May 25 (road race). There is also a mountain bike marathon (May 24) and a cross country (May 22) race on the menu.

The 34.8-kilometre time trial is an international effort, with the riders taking off in the centre of Nijmegen, and heading on over the border to Germany, which happens around the midway point. Via long, straight roads, the time trialers will head back to the Netherlands. Before the border can be crossed, a 12% climb has to be tackled.
