The riding in the mountainous areas around Innsbruck sets the World Championships up to be one of the hardest in recent times. The Elite Men’s road race takes in 265km of riding with more than 4,500 metres of climbing. For your chance to sample what the pros will face, you can visit Zwift and ride a simulated part of the road course.
The week starts with team time trials, with the mid-week taken up by the individual time trials. This will also be the chance to see up and coming talent in the junior categories.
The World Championships come to a climax towards the end of the week with the road races, finishing with the Elite Women on 29 September and Elite Men on 30 September.

The Road World Championships will be available to watch through the BBC on TV via the Red Button or online. We have been unable to find the schedule for this year, but last year the Elite road races and time trials were covered live, with highlights in the evening.
FuboTV is also providing coverage of the race. By subscribing to its service you gain access to the NBCSN channel. You will have to subscribe to the basic FuboTV package for $44.99 per month, but FuboTV does pitch itself as a complete replacement for your current cable package.
The site has a sub-licensing agreement with the Fubo Cycling channel (that doesn’t include access to other FuboTV channels), giving you access to content streamed there. You can check the full Flobikes cycling calendar here.
