    The team time trials

    As usual now since several years (2012 to be more precise), the World Championships Road Cycling 2015 in Richmond will start with the team time trials.

    The race route of the team time trials for these World Championships Road Cycling are strictly identical for Men and Women, with a start in the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Lakeside, originally the Lakeside Wheel Club, a club created in 1895 for the cyclists of that time. Like all other races of these World Championships, the race route ends with a 300 meter climb on Governor Street in the center of Richmond followed by a left turn and 680 false flat till the finish at the crossing of East Broad Street and North 5th Street.

    Hereunder you'll find the race route of the team time trials on Google Maps and the profiles of these races.

    individual time trial Women Junior / Men U23 / Men Junior / Elite Women - 15 / 30 km
    The race route of the individual time trials is identical for the Women Junior, Men U23, Men Junior and Elite Women. It'll be a circuit of 15 kilometers starting in the North 3rd Street in the city center and the finish will be the same as for the team time trial (and all other races), at the crossing between the East Broad Street and North 5th Street. In-beween, each of the riders will find a quite technical race route, including for example a complete U-turn and another place where the race turns around using several turns and an access ramp at the other side of James River and after having visited of Belle Isle.
