Conquer the 2018 World Championship at Innsbruck with Bkool

Ahead of the action unfolding at the UCI World Championships later on this summer, Bkool is giving fans and riders from all over the world the opportunity to test themselves on the same course as the pros.

Using the GPX data from the 2018 route, Bkool has uploaded the course for both the time-trial and the gruelling elite mens route. This gives riders of all abilities the chance to cycle the actual route profile and challenge themselves on the same fierce inclines as the pros in a 3D world.


With Sagan already eyeing a record breaking fourth World Championship title it looks as if the course has been especially designed to upset his dominance and let the climbers shine.

Six laps around the main climb will be completed before the final finishing circuit is tackled. This is where the punishing 25% gradients will be experienced and where the course has gained the reputation as the ‘toughest in history’.


On September 23, just as the World Championships are getting underway, Bkool will also kick off a special competition to crown the first male and female virtual World Champions on these routes.

For those wanting to experience the glory of the Championship, you can start training now.
