ABOUT THIS COURSE
The Team Time Trial was reintroduced to the Road World Championships in 2012 for Elite Men and Women and remains the only discipline contested by “trade teams” (all other events at Road Worlds are contested by national teams).
Teams will roll off from Henrico County at beautiful Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, originally the Lakeside Wheel Club, founded in 1895 as a gathering spot for turn-of-the-century cyclists. The opening kilometers race through Richmond’s historic Northside neighborhoods leading into downtown.
The course continues east of Richmond down rural Route 5, which parallels the 50-mile Virginia Capital Trail. The first few kilometers are scenic, flat, open roads that eventually narrow and wind through Richmond National Battlefield Park, a historic Civil War site.
The race re-enters the city through Shockoe Bottom, eventually making a hard right turn on Governor Street to ascend 300 meters. At the top, teams take a sharp left turn onto the false-flat finishing straight, 680 meters to the finish.
