Team USA set to Compete at Road Worlds in Innsbruck

The 2018 UCI Road World Championships kicks off on Sunday September 23rd 2018 with the Team Time Trial in Innsbruck, Austria. Between the 23rd and 30th of September, Team USA will have athletes competing in a total of twelve races categories; Elite Men, Elite Women, Junior Men, Junior Women and U23 Men across the disciplines of Individual Time Trial (ITT), Team Time Trial (TTT) and Road Race.

With climbs that take riders through the heart of the Alps, including approximately 5,000 meters of altitude gain in the Elite Men’s Road Race, Innsbruck-Tirol is considered one of the top ten most difficult World Championships courses.
