So I did the World Champs course again a few times yesterday. It was pretty windy (12-15 meters per second winds), and lemme tell you, if the wind's coming in from the West, the race'll be pretty tough. The last 5 km or so are pretty exposed to a Western wind.

About 2,5 km in (of 14 total), there's a 250m climb at about 9%. I was able to stay on the big... sprocket?... going up both times, but it draws teeth. There are two 90 degree turns on the climb, and it narrows a bit, so it could well be a place where things happen.

I generally 65 kph twice, on different parts of the course - though I had a bit of a tailwind, both times.

The first impressions stand though; it's a course that doesn't really let you just grind. It's either up, down, left or right.
