World TT Course

David Millar just tweeted this

Quote:
TT course not so pleasant, 2x23km laps, resembles a Belgium kermesse. Tony Martin put it perfectly, 'I think I do not like this course.'

Not sounding good if two of the big guys already don't like the course after just seeing it today Thinking

I think I remember seeing a Tweet from Pinotti in which he also seemed unimpressed

I went onto the official UCI world champioship site and through google it takes you through the course. Some of it seems fine but there also appears to be a lot of open ground with no protection so if it's windy it might be a nightmare.

It also appears to be perfectly flat ? Thinking

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

Yeah Pinotti has said a few things

Quote:
Reckon TT course done, together with most of the riders,despite few names missing. Fast, but it's going to be tricky if it's as expected.

First TT training in Denmark. 100+ kms. Did one lap of road race for curiosity: I think is going to be bunch sprint 99%.

It does look a bit open at places, but its also been steam rolled and all the houses are like pancakes in some parts Devil
