  • Thank you for your article. This is Spain, now I see, it talks about that place, Valladolid (spelling?).

    Thanks for that Victor. The graphs of the hills are useful.
    3700 m is by no means a very hard WC, so I'm not sure about the article's claim it's something for Bertie. But definitely no sprinters loop. Is that 3 world champs in a row for Ardennes specialists?

    When the circuit done so often as it is in the WC, it's pretty difficult to design a course that ISN'T for Ardenne specialists. It's not like they can go up the Galibier 16 times.

    Except a sprinter I think anyone can win here
