Race 2 - Monday September 27: Time Trial - U23 Men, 36.75km

Course description

All time trials start and finish in Bardolino, adjacent to the lakefront at Lago di Garda (Lake Garda), with each of the five championship categories covering loops of varying sizes, offering their share of sinuous twists and turns, short, sharp climbs and demanding descents.

For the Under 23 Men, who complete a distance of 36.75 kilometres, riders head north in a clockwise direction from Bardolino (68m alt.) for a flat first run out to Garda (68m alt.). A right-hand turn then sees them tackling the course's most difficult climb up to Costermano (253m alt.), where the road continues to rise ever so slightly until Caprino Veronese (256m alt.).

From here, it's due south for almost 10 k's down into Sega (98m alt.) via Rivoli Veronese (195m alt.). Once at Sega, it's a sharp right for a slightly downward run into Lazise (71m alt.) and then right again, which brings the chrono men back along the seafront for a fast, flat-out run back to the start/finish line via Cisano (67m alt.).
