I just got the notification on completion of the TDZ about the Tour of Innsbruck. It seems like a natural progression from the courses I’ve just completed to have a go at this next challenge, but, the course is listed as being 2700ft, that’s 24% more than the greatest ascension on any of the TDZ circuits, and I know from riding the TDZ that it took me approx 2 hours to complete the longer stages and it destroyed me, meaning I wouldn’t be able to repeat the performance the very next day.
It seems a little bit inconsiderate and non-inclusive to have an event like this which must be done within 3 days, and exclude anyone with a normal family life, or other obligations as I can’t dedicate this amount of time to cycling.
I also got this notion with TDZ, with the stages changing every 72 hours, but this new Innsbruck tour takes that to the extreme.
The course info here looks like it might be incorrect, with Group A being 2 laps, Groups B and C being 1 lap, and all groups listed with the same ascension stats?
