Bike Course Recon
Overall Surface Quality:
Average - well paved and smooth in most sections, but some of course is weathered rural roads
This bike course is characterized by one thing and only one thing: ROLLERS. With over 1100 meters climbed but only a range in 110m of elevation, this is the rolliest 70.3 bike in the world. If you’re not built for a constant up and down, you’re going to have a… fun time on the bike.
You can tell by just looking, this profile looks like the blade of a hacksaw:
Only 1/3 of the 90km course is flat (falls within the range of -1% to 1% grade). These hills are very short, but can get extremely steep, just look at hill #1. Since there are only a couple turns on the whole course (out and back) we’ll mainly cover the hills here, and since there are more than you can keep track of, we’ve made a table with the locations of the important ones for you to print out and tape to your top tube or stem (see at bottom).

Now of course there’s no way for you to remember all of those, let alone when you’re 65km into the course and in excruciating pain, so here’s a table of the major hills to print out and tape to your top tube:
