2024 UCI Championship Time Trial

This course is a flat course and will have 133 m (418 ft) of undulating climbing. This makes the course perfect for Time Trial and ideal for new records, both personal and in the UCI Championships.

The course follows the beautiful coast along the Limfjord. In Denmark you have wind from west with approximately 220 days a year which means that you normally will discover a headwind on your way out and a nice tailwind on your way back to the finish line.

The course is almost identical to the course used in 2022 and 2023 for the National Championships in Denmark. In June 2023 Emma Norsgaard Bjerg, Movistar (stage winner of the 6th stage at the 2023 Tour de France – femmes) won the Danish national TT women's championship. Kasper Asgreen, Soudal-Quickstep (stage winner of the 18th stage at the 2023 Tour de France and winner of the 2021 Tour of Flanders) won the Danish national TT men's championship

Both these riders loved this course and their feedback was clear – this is a perfect Time Trial course!

Distance: 33 km and 133 m / 20,7 miles and 418 ft.

2024 UCI Championship Medio Fondo

The course will have a start and finish line in the heart of Aalborg, where you will find a cozy and bikefriendly atmosphere. This will be your chance to ride like the pros, as the Road Race will take place in the area where Jonas Vingegaard and Michael Valgren often trained as young riders.

Denmark can’t provide big mountains but the course will have many small hills with technical sections and will challenge you with sustained efforts and continuous rolling climbs, suiting puncheurs and roulers. The wind could also be a big factor being close to the sea.

The race is primarily on good asphalt paved roads and one cobbled-section.

The Medio Fondo is 111 km long (69.3 miles) with 950 meters (3,116 ft) of climbing

2024 UCI Championship Team Relay

The course for Team Relay will be in the beautiful surroundings by Musikkens Hus (The House of Music) and Aalborg Habourfront. 

This course will invite maximum speed as it is flat and without technical sections. Also it is close to the city center so many spectators will find their way to cheer for the riders. 

Distance: 2,2 km / 1,4 miles
