Bike Course Recon
Overall Surface Quality:
This 2 loop bike takes you out of downtown Copenhagen into the green fields of rural Denmark. The course itself falls somewhere in the middle of Ironman bike courses, not flat, but by no means the hilliest. The rolling hills never get above 5% and only breaks a 3% gradient 12 times:
However, over the 180km ride you’ll still climb almost 650 meters, nearly all of that coming in the form of false flats (1% to 3%). This is a very fast course - In 2021, the Ineos Grenadiers’ Cameron Wurf set the course record of 4:02:19. Most of the pros average between 4hr 10min and 4hr 25min.
We can’t find much to say about the climbs along the course, but these are the biggest hills:
Climb of Humlebæk Strandvej (@ km 40.5 and 118)
1km, 26m gained, 4.3% peak gradient
Climb of Birkerød Kongevej (@ km 75.5 and 153)
1km, 19m gained, 4.5% peak gradient
Climb of Kongevejen C93 (@ km 82 and 160)
0.7km, 21m gained, 4.7% peak gradient
Turns and Straightaways
There are quite a few turns along the course, especially along the northern part and in downtown, but there are also long stretches to stay tucked down in aero and keep your speed.
The good news is that almost the entirety of this 25km is completely flat, falling between a -1% and 1% grade.
The entire east side of the loop has no major turns for 26km, until a 90 degree right turn at the top of the Climb of Humlebæk Strandvej mentioned above.
There are also 17 km heading south without any turns, but 2 of the 3 significant rollers mentioned above.
Transition info will be released closer to the race date in the athlete guide which can be found here
Here are links to the 2021 transition zones, since the course hasn’t changed, this year’s transition will probably look similar to last year’s:
