Worlds 2010: It ain't a sprinterfest mate!


Wade Wallace has done a nice job again and has taken a ride on the 2010 world championships road racing course. He has it edited on his site. You can check it on www.cyclingtipsblog.com .

After seeing the video and checking the profile I will agree with Wade and say that this will not be a sprinter's party as everybody seems to be saying. Climbs are short but are steep there are sections of 15% and later on smoother at 10%. They are not close to the finish, but I think after going through these climbs 11 times there will not be any pure sprinter left to tell any history.

I think it will be for climbers who have a decent fast finish. We are too far from October but I will put my reputation as runner up on the Johan gnome Vuelta contest (Pequeño Concurso) on the line and bet on some names:

Gesink, the Green Bullet (will he be racing by then?), Cunego, Gerrans just to stay with the stronger teams.

What do you think? Can the manx express surprise us and make it?
