Piggy I would take a look at the bike course from memory both those races have slightly hilly route's so dopending on you want to achieve it might be worth it or a bit scary. With hills come learning how to fly down them without falling off like the Italain job.

Yes both do look slightly 'undulating' .... What about Zurich? Is that flatterer? Pig x

Barcelona - Flat

Barcelona - Sunny

Barcelona - Bollocks

Not that Flat, but not overly hilly... sunny maybe, but not on the day I did it well not the whole day

My point is that no matter what you think you might be training for might not be what you get - expect the worst from any course and train accordingly.

Barcelona is a good course though in nice surroundings and you might get a get a sunny day and its towards the end of season, allowing you to max summer training


stay local and do Challenge Weymouth

or Outlaw was absolutely barmy on race day as I recall and it's pretty flat as courses go from memory

Flat is not neccesarily easier

Yes great point witchy beast

Flat requires constant cadence for you to maintain speed, and if you are ok on climbing hills at reasonable pace and learn to descend efficiently undulating courses can be quicker!

I still wouldn't do Nice though

Austria is supposed to be an awesome race
