Spring Classics (Cat. 2, deadline on 22/4)

Post by emmea90 » 15/03/2018, 10:40

Contest #5 - Spring Classics (Cat. 2, deadline on 22/4)

For the third regular contest of the season - fifth on overall - the topic will be, of course, the spring classics.

We took in exam some classics and the target will be different case by case. You can see this contests as a collection of small contests.

In the final delivery you have to deliver ONE single tour with all the classics insert in exactly the order of this post.

Omloop Het Nieuwsblad
Track 1 - Order in the tour: #1
In the last edition of the Omloop the race was crap due to have the only Muur as a real hard cobbled climb near the finish. Organizers decided to change it keeping the Muur as the key point and finish in Ninove but you have to change the route to have more battle in the middle portion like it was until 2017 edition. You have also to keep the race under 200 Km as it's only the first classic of the season

Strade Bianche
Track 1 - Order in the tour: #2
Are you bored from the finish in Siena? Yes, we are. The track of the strade Bianche will be about a complete re-design of the route changing the finish in a way that kept more longer portions on gravel road in the last Kms and also inserts some technical difficulties before the finish. The route should favourite early attacks but should not have too much km on asphalt than on gravel road in the final part as it's now.

Milano-Sanremo
Track 1 - Order in the tour: #3
Milano-Sanremo has to change. In the origin race was supposed to be 50% mass sprint, 50% attacks. Find a solution that keeping the key points of "La Classicissima" restored equal chances for late attackers. You cannot change start and finish points (see Milano-Sanremo 2018 in the calendar) and you have to stay under 300 Kms.

Track 2 - Order in the tour: #4
After the anti-system victory of Lega and Five Star Movement at the last elections, City of Sanremo decided not to pay anymore for the finish. You have to re-create a new Sanremo ending it in another place - not necessary in Liguria - but keeping start in Milano. You have to keep start point, staying over 290 and under 300 Kms. You cannot do loops or circuits. You have to insert similar difficulties, for place, length and slopes to Capi, Cipressa and Poggio. Turchino is a plus in the evaluation, but not required.

Track 3 - Order in the tour: #5
Unfortunately also Milan didn't decide to pay anymore for the start. Your job is to re-create again this classic between other two places in Italy. Of course you cannot use pieces of the previous track. It's not necessary drawing it in North Italy but start should be in a city comparable with Milan. (Turin, Rome, Florence, Venice, Naples etc...)

Gent-Wevelgem
Track 1 - Order in the tour: #6
The track here is simply about hardening the route after that Cassel was not present anymore in it. Think as you want but consider you cannot add more laps on Kemmelberg as Women's and Under 23 races has to pass over it. Of course you cannot move the finish line.

Ronde Van Vlaanderen
Track 1 - Order in the tour: #7
Let's make a FULL Ronde, for Full ronde, I mean you have to insert in the route all of the following bers at least one time: Muur, Bosberg, Koppenberg, Eikenberg, Taaienberg, Steenbekdries, Kruisberg/Hotond, Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg, Leberg, Berendries, Tenbosse, Kanarieberg, Baneberg, Monteberg, Kemmelberg, Kluisberg, Nokereberg, Molenberg, Valkenberg. Yes, we are going also in the Gent-Wevelgem zone, why vasting the first Kms doing all flat? You can start and finish where you want, of course in Flanders.

Track 2 - Order in the tour: #8
The second track about Ronde will be about Muur. You have to inser Muur in the route keeping it as a key part for the final outcome but keeping the finish line in Oudenaarde as it's today.

Paris-Roubaix
Track 1 - Order in the tour: #9
There is one forgotten Paris-Roubaix sector that is not anymore in the route: Phalempin à Gondecourt (maps/viewtrack/68001). Redesign the Roubaix keeping length and key parts to include this five star sector in the route. You can add it or you can choose to replace another hard sector with it.

Track 2 - Order in the tour: #10
Redesign the Paris-Roubaix in a belgian zone of your choice. You can help yourself with cobble map for zone and cobbles difficulty. Remember it has to be a Roubaix, not a Ronde, so don't use 10% or above Muurs.

Amstel Gold Race
Track 1 - Order in the tour: #11
After removing last Cauberg, Amstel organization decide to place again Amstel finish line in Maastricht. Redesign the route according to this decision, making an enyojable route with attacks that has to be done in the middle portion like in 2017 edition.

La Fleche Wallone
Track 1 - Order in the tour: #12
Redesign la Fleche Wallone removing Mur de Huy as uphill finish but keeping it as a key part in the final (last or penultimate climb) with a route that allows the race to be decided before the Mur

Track 2 - Order in the tour: #13
Redesign la Fleche Wallone in another zone of Wallonie at your choice, moving start and finish line. Mur de Huy must be present in the route in a position of your choice, not necessary as a key point. You cannot, of course, end in Liege and you have to choose a city comparable to Huy or big for the finish.

Liege-Bastogne-Liege
Track 1 - Order in the tour: #14
Redesign the Liege-Bastogne-Liege removing the finish in Ans. As in the Amstel Gold race, you have to propose a route that support the attacks in the middle portion of the race. Of course, you have to pass on Bastogne in the route. Finish cannot be uphill.

ALL THE RACES MUST BE DONE WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE ASO STYLES. Use Fleche Wallone style for Amstel. This will make comparison more easy for us. For race with a lot of climbs, you can decide not to insert slopes on profile if overlaps. I reccomend you all too choose VERY LARGE profile to use full x-axis.

The deadline will be on 22/4 when the winner of Liege-Bastogne-Liege crosses the finish line.

Please take your time in submitting the route, you won't win anything for being quick.

Is Spa a good finish city for La Flèche Wallone #2 ?

Thanks
Yes, even if a bit too obvious as Old Fleche Wallone ended in Spa
Thanks
And Stavelot or Trois-Ponts ?
Too small. Huy is 20k inhabitants...

Is Bari a valid city for starting the last mini-contest of Milano-Sanremo (#5).
I know it isn't as big as Milano, Turin, Rome or Naples, but it's comparable with cities as Bologna or Florence, and a bit larger than Venice. (At least according to the spanish Wikipedia :lol: zizo )

Hello, here I expose my Spring Classics : maps/tours/view/8766

#1 : Omloop Het Nieuwsblad : Brussels (Moortebeke) - Ninove (Meerbeke) (Hilly - 192 ,91 km)

Image

The serious things start at 64 km away from the finish with the Paterberg. After that there are the Koppenberg, Taaienberg, and Berendries for most difficults before the Kapelmuur. All these climbs can play an important role for victory in Meerbeke.

#2 : Strade Bianche : Castelfiorentino - Castelfiorentino (Hilly - 203,37 km)

Image

The climb of Volterra and the Cozzano sector can do a real selection of strong riders for the last climb.

#3 : Milano Sanremo : Milano - Sanremo (Flat - 296,54 km)

Image

The Terzorio climb has been added to Milano Sanremo this year to give more chances to punchers. This climb is just after Cipressa, not very long but can give more offensive chances.

#4 : Milano Bologna : Milano - Bologna (Flat - 295,95 km)

Image

A very cool race I think, a little bit harder than real Milano Sanremo but can be very interesting.

#5 : Bari Salerno : Bari - Salerno (Hilly - 290,76 km)

Image

This race can be very interesting, it lets equal chances for punchers and sprinters because the ending climbs are not very hard.

I added for this Gent Wevelgem at passage on Plugstreets and a litte climb after to make possible attacks after the Kemmelberg.

#7 : Ronde Van Vlaanderen : Ypres - Meerbeke (Hilly - 263,84 km)

Image

All these climbs and cobbled sectors are in the route: Muur, Bosberg, Koppenberg, Eikenberg, Taaienberg, Steenbekdries, Kruisberg/Hotond, Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg, Leberg, Berendries, Tenbosse, Kanarieberg, Baneberg, Monteberg, Kemmelberg, Kluisberg, Nokereberg, Molenberg, Valkenberg. I added the Steenberg climb and Kaperij and Bonte cobbled sectors.

#8 : Ronde Van Vlaanderen : Antwerpen - Oudenaarde (Hilly - 267,42 km)

Image

The Kapelmuur is in the last 60 km. It can create some attacks and create an interesting group before the Kruisberg.

#9 : Paris - Roubaix : Soissons - Roubaix (Flat - 269,77 km)

Image

I didn't much change the actual Paris-Roubaix, because I find it really interesting and doesn't need modifications. New sectors are Saint-Hilaire à Saint-Vaast and Millonfosse à Bousignies, and of course Phalempin à Gondecourt and Chemy à Gondecourt

#10 : Mons - Leuven : Mons - Leuven (Flat - 251,66 km)

Image

This belgian Paris-Roubaix is very nice for attacks with very long cobbled sectors of 4 or 5 km. Total distance: 42,4 km of cobbled sectors

#11 : Amstel Gold Race : Maastricht - Maastricht (Hilly - 240,50 km)

Image

This Amstel is favorable for attacks in the middle portion with a chain of climbs starting at 80 km away from finish line, and the last climb at south of Maastricht called Zonneberg.

#12 : Flèche Wallonne : Charleroi - Amay (Hilly - 178,30 km)

Image

This Flèche Wallonne is ending with 3 very difficult climbs, the Côte de Cherave, Mur de Huy and Côte d'Amay. Cherave and Mur de Huy can be launchers for attacks and anticipating final climb.

#13 : Flèche Wallonne : Dinant - Verviers (Hilly - 193,92 km)

Image

This Flèche is more favorable for attacks in the middle portion with that unbelievably hard Col de Targnon with some very hard percentages.

The last climb of this LBL is the Rue Naniot, half-taken in 2016 in the victory of Wout Poels. This time we climb it totally, with his city cobbles.

Re: Spring Classics (Cat. 2, deadline on 22/4)

Post by lorenzo.tripodi » 18/04/2018, 12:15

This is my Track : maps/tours/view/8998

TRACK 1

Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

Image

My path to the Omloop is very canonical compared to the true path of the first classic of the north, facing 15 Flemish walls. The coupled-Kapelmuur Bosberg will be the launch pad for the specialists attacks.


TRACK 2

Strade Bianche

Image

Why not make the Strade Bianche become a Monument? I almost radically changed the path by adding many sectors of dirt, keeping the climb of Montalcino and lengthening the path to more than 200 km.


TRACK 3

Milano-Sanremo (1)


Image

The original route of the Milan-Sanremo is not hard enough, so I added various difficulties especially in the last 90 km as Le Manie and the Pompeiana.


TRACK 4

Milano-Sanremo (2)


Image

The race of this revolutionary Milan-Sanremo starts in Milan, but the path is absolutely different. The greatest difficulty is the 100 km with the entrance of the Passo Tre Termini, we arrive in Veneto and we find the last two climbs that will decide in a utopian reality the Classicissima, which ends in Abano Terme.


TRACK 5

Milano-Sanremo (3)


Image

Totally changed route, departure and arrival of this "Milan-Sanremo". First of all, you start from Calabria and its capital Catanzaro, after only 80 km you will face the Passo Condrò. At minus 100, fireworks begin with the ascent of Panaia and Nicotera and the final one at minus 35 of Barritteri.


TRACK 6

Gent-Wevelgem

Image

I made a Gent-Wevelgem not particularly complicated with the beginning of hostilities on the tear of Cassel, the Monts des Cats and then to return to Belgium with the final walls like the Monteberg and the Kemmelberg.


TRACK 7

Ronde Van Vlaanderen (1)

Image

A simply murdering Tour of Flanders, 25 Flemish walls are covered in 267 km, starting with the final part of the Gent-Wevelgem (Monteberg, Kemmelberg) and then facing the historic walls Berendries, Bosberg, Kapelmuur, Koppenberg, Taaienberg, Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg and much more.


TRACK 8

Ronde Van Vlaanderen (2)

Image

Less harsh than the previous one, but not for this simple fact. You start with the circuit to be repeated three times which includes the Bosperg and the Kapelmuur, then you go in the area of Oudenaarde and you travel the Taaienberg, the Kruisberg ecct. To get to the circuit to be repeated twice that includes the Oude Kwaremont and the Paterberg, finally arriving in the city of Oudenaarde.


TRACK 9

Paris - Roubaix (1)

Image

In this Paris - Roubaix I wanted to change a few things compared to the original, keeping the Trouée d'Arenberg, but eliminating the Carrefour de l'Arbre. However, the pavé sectors are 28.


TRACK 10

Paris - Roubaix (2)

Image

It was really difficult to design a Paris-Roubaix in Belgium, the cobblestone sectors are much less difficult than in France, but I have found 29 that are not few.


TRACK 11

Amstel Gold Race

Image

In this Amstel Gold Race I removed the mythical wall of Cauberg, creating a circuit to be repeated several times that ends with the arrival in Maastricht.


TRACK 12

La Fleche Wallone (1)

Image

The canonical path of these years has grown tired, I have almost completely changed the race also the arrival that no longer ends on the Wall of Huy (which will be the second to last asperity) but on the Cote de Cherave.


TRACK 13

La Fleche Wallone

Image

Even this path does not end on the Wall of Huy, but on its almost homonymous Thier de Huy.


TRACK 14

Liege-Bastogne-Liege

Image

Relatively changed course compared to the canonical one that does not end at Ans, but after the descent of the Cote de Saint Nicolas.

Hello,

This is my Spring Classics Contest entrance:
maps/tours/view/9017


Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

Gent > Ninove 196km

Image

I wanted to keep the main difficulties of this race like Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg, Molenberg, Kapelmuur and Bosberg. In addition to that I added some flat cobbled sectors and some hellingen to make the middle part harder. After the Bosberg I added the Pollareberg as a last chance for an attack.


Strade Bianche

Siena > Siena - Monteriggioni 184

Image

Last climb:
Image

I added a lot more climbing and gravel roads to this classic. There are some longer climbs to encourage long range attacks. In the end there are some steep climbs on gravel to give late attackers a chance, too. I relocated the finish towards Monteriggioni a village near Siena. The cyclists have to climb up a short steep to Monteriggioni before there is a short downhill to the finish line.


Milano - Sanremo 1

Milano > Sanremo 297km

Image

I have changed three things of the route. First of all I reintroduced the Le Manie climb. Than I replaced Capo Berta with the longer climb up to Serrate and then I added a short but steep climb right after the Cipressa. All this changes should make the race harder and give attackers a chance to distance them from the sprinters.


Milano - Sanremo 2

Milano > Borgo San Dalmazzo 293km

Image

I chose the finish in Borgo San Dalmazzo near Cuneo which is located at the foot of the Alpes. The route travels towards Torino where the Superga climb is located. Then there are some climbs with 60 km to go which replace the Capo climbs. And in the end there are two climbs which should simulate the Cipressa and the Poggio.


Milano - Sanremo 3

Bologna > Bergamo 291km

Image

For this task I stayed in the Northern Italy but traveled eastwards. This race starts in Bologna and travels to Brescia where the peloton have to climb to cobbled climbs. On the way towards Bologna there are two climbs which are compareable to the Cipressa and the Poggio. But after this climbs there are still 30km left. Near the finish the riders have to climb Bergamo Alta from two different sides with some cobbles on the way. The last climb and the finish have been used as a finish in another famous Classic the Giro di Lombardia.


Gent - Wevelgem

Deinze > Wevelgem 257km

Image

The starting place remained the same but I put Cassel back on the map. On the way to the hellingen there cyclists take on four cobbled sectors. Then they have to climb up to Cassel on three different sides on cobbles. On the way to Belgium there are more hard climbs left including two times the Mont des Cats. In Belgium there are two climbs up the Kemmelberg, each time from a different side. Between the Kemmelberg climbs I added some small Hellingen to make the race harder and to encourage attackers. On the way to Wevelgem there is one more flat cobbled sector and two small climbs.


Ronde Van Vlaanderen 1

Ieper > Geraardsbergen 274km

Image

With this task I wanted to make the Ronde as hard as possible. I chose to start in Ieper to have the Heuvelland climbs right in the beginning. then the race goes to Franceand the Wallonie where there are two more cobbled climbs before the race reaches the mainland of the Ronde. The finish is in Geraardsbergen like in the Eneco Tour. Bfore the finish the last climbs are the Muur and the Bosberg. All in all there are 30 hellingen.


Ronde Van Vlaanderen 2

Antwerpen > Oudenaarde 267km

Image

I chose to remain in Antwerpen for the start. But the race is completly different. The race goes to Vlaams-Brabant where there are many cobbled secteurs and climbs the Ronde never used before. The aim of this task was to make the Muur relevant again. I accomplished that with a loop araound Geraardsbergen which means two climbs of the Muur and the Bosberg. After the second climb of the Muur there are less than 80kms left towards the finish in Oudenaarde with the Oude Kwaremont as the last climb.


Paris - Roubaix

Compiegne > Roubaix 272km

Image

This Paris Roubaix I wanted to have all 5-star sectors of the current race in it and wanted to add a lot of new sectors. All in all 18 of the 37 sectors are new and three sectors are used slightly different. Those sectors accumulate to 56kms of cobbles. In the part after Troisville I took a more direct approach towards Valenciennes. Then the route travels more north than usual before the arenberg-sector. There is even a new 5-star sectors included before Arenberg. After that the route passes Orchies and Mons-en-Pevele before they hit two more new 5-star sectors near Lille. Than the route goes back to Carrefour-d'Arbre before Roubaix.

Paris - Roubaix 2

Bruxelles > Mons 265km

Image

The Belgian Paris - Roubaix starts in Bruxelles and uses the cobbled sectors mostly south of Mons. There are many short sectors and there are lots of turns. The race should be very nervous because of that. It has 39 cobbled sectors with a total of 59km The final part has slightly less cobbles than the middle part. but there is a lomg and hard flase flat sector coming up with under 30 km to go which could decide the race. There is on more sector before Mons and the finish on urban cobbles in Mons which is slightly uphill.

Amstel Gold Race

Maastricht > Maastricht 265km

Image

For this Amstel I wanted to include many new climbs and not use one climb form the same side twice. This route visits every part of Zuid-Limburg. The climbs in the first part of the race are easy. But After about 100kms there are the first hard climbs with the highlight of the early Keutenberg. The route travels towards Maastricht again before it goes back towards the mainland of the Gold Race. with 90km to go there comes the longer climbs of the Amstel with he likes of Camerig and the Vaalserberg. Then the steep climbs come up with the Oude Huls, Eyserbosweg, Doode Man and the Cauberg. atfterwards there are still 27km left and four climbs to go. the climbs in the last part are not that difficult. So everyone who wants to avoid a sprint needs to attack earlier.


La Fleche Wallone 1

Bastogne > Huy 206km

Image

In this version there is a run in from Bastogne with some longer Ardennes climbs and a finish on a circuit around Huy. The circuit features both the Thier de Huy and the Mur de Huy. The finish line is located on a short but steep climb with 380m at 10% which directly starts after a short downhill from the Mur de Huy.

La Fleche Wallone 2

Spa > Dinant 200km

Image

his version starts in Spa and travels towards Liege. After Liege the route follows the Meuse and goes up and down. The Mur de Huy is the first climb. After that the riders travel towards Namur where they have to take on two cobbled climbs up to the Citadelle. The route goes south towards Dinant where the finish is located. On the way there are some steep climbs which should downsize the peloton and give attackers a chance. The hardest climb before Dinant is the Triple mur de Monty. In Dinant there is a climb with 650m at 14.8% and after that there is rougly 1500m left before the finish near the Citadelle de Dinant

Liege - Bastogne - Liege

Liege > Liege 258km

Image

This route of Liege Bastogne Liege is designed to decide the race before Liege. After Bastogne there are five longer climbs to thin out the peloton. Then there are three climbs to give attackers a launching pad. the last three climbs are longer again and not so steep. A strong rider could use them too put more distance between him and his rivals.

What's the limit in terms of kilometers for the Strade Bianche ?
UCI limit.
I did check the UCI rules and this is what's written for UCI World Tour Races : Distance fixed by the Council of Professional Cycling so it's undefined. And for track #13 (the redesigned Fleche Wallonne), do we need to make the final uphill or can it be flat ?

This is my proposal for the spring classics. maps/tours/view/8939

1)Omloop Het Nieuwsblad
Image
My idea for an improved Omloop Het Nieuwsblad that keeps the finish in Ninove comes from the route the Tour of Flanders used to have when it finished there. I have included 3 more climbs than in the 2018 edition and I have added 10 new cobble sectors. To improve the middle part of the race I have included the climbs of Oude-Kwaremont, Paterberg, Kortekeer (I had the temptation to put Koppenberg, but I found it was too hard and dangerous for this race), Taaienberg, Eikenberg and Varent, and then follow the same climbs until Kappelmuur and Bosberg (not much can be done there). Then I decided to put another paved climb (Congoberg), and three cobbled sections. This has two effects. First of all, Kappelmuur is not as close to the finish line as it was before, so it will not be as decisive. Secondly, the three cobbled sectors bring this race back to its former roots, where the cobbled sectors had a much bigger impact on the race.

GPM: 1/Molenberg (54 m, 0.6 Km al 4.2%, Km 49.5), 2/Volkemberg (68 m, 1.1 Km al 2.8%, Km 57.9), 3/Oude-Kwaremont (111 m, 3.0 Km al 3.3%, Km 99.0), 4/Paterberg (72 m, 0.6 Km al 6.7%, Km 103.0), 5/Kortekeer (87 m, 1.5 Km al 4.6%, Km 108.3), 6/Taaienberg (80 m, 1.0 Km al 4.5%, Km 114.2), 7/Eikenberg (80 m, 1.2 Km al 4.9%, Km 118.4), 8/Varent (97 m, 1.5 Km al 4.3%, Km 123.5), 9/Molenberg (57 m, 0.6 Km al 4.2%, Km 128.4), 10/Leberg (95 m, 1.0 Km al 3.4%, Km 135.8), 11/Berendries (92 m, 0.8 Km al 7.4%, Km 139.8), 12/Valkenberg (94 m, 1.9 Km al 3.0%, Km 145.7), 13/Ten Bosse (68 m, 0.4 Km al 6.1%, Km 150.9), 14/Muur - Kapelmuur (99 m, 1.2 Km al 6.1%, Km 161.1), 15/Bosberg (100 m, 1.2 Km al 5.0%, Km 165.1), 16/Congoberg (87 m, 1.4 Km al 3.1%, Km 171.6).

SETTORI DI PAVE: 1. Polderstraat (+, 400 m, Km 13.6), 2. Driesstraat (+, 800 m, Km 16.5), 3. Asselkouter (+, 400 m, Km 23.6), 4. Munte (+, 300 m, Km 24.6), 5. Lange Munte (+, 2200 m, Km 33.5), 6. Doolbosweg (+, 2500 m, Km 42.5), 7. Borstekouterstraat (+, 400 m, Km 43.5), 8. Kerkgate (+, 3000 m, Km 55.5), 9. Kattenberg (+, 1000 m, Km 59.4), 10. Doorn (+, 1900 m, Km 68.5), 11. Wannegem-Lede (+, 2300 m, Km 71.5), 12. Varentstraat (+, 2000 m, Km 92.5), 13. Steenbeekdries (+, 2100 m, Km 112.2), 14. Jagerij (+, 1000 m, Km 125.4), 15. Schavolliestraat (+, 1700 m, Km 177.1), 16. Opperstebosstraat (+, 1000 m, Km 179.2), 17. Kasseide (+, 500 m, Km 180.6).

2)Strade Bianche
Image
My proposed route for this race features more white roads (115 km in total), and the thoughest part is the middle part. From the 40 to 135 km we have 7 sectors which include many climbs and descents. The last one is Monte Sante Marie, where I expect the most important attack will happen, wreaking havoc in the peloton. Then we head north towards the new sectors. Vaglaigli and Cignano include parts of the longest climb in the course. It will be important, but not decisive on its own because it is not very steep. The last four sectors are near the finish (35 to 5 km from the finish). Neither of them is very though, so the peloton will already be quite spread out, but they all include climbs and descent, and there is little asphalt between them. The last 5 km include two climbs on asphalt and cobbles. The last one is a bit "Siena-esque", but it is not as narrow, twisty and steep as the finish in Siena, so riders do not have the temptation to wait until the last km.

SETTORI DI PAVE: 1. Radi (+, 12600 m, Km 20.4), 2. Villa Piana (+, 5500 m, Km 32.4), 3. Torrenieri (+, 5600 m, Km 46.9), 4. Spedaletto - Pienza (+, 5000 m, Km 66.2), 5. Poggio San Pietro (+, 13400 m, Km 80.5), 6. Lucignano d'Asso (+, 9000 m, Km 91.5), 7. Pieve a Salti (+, 7900 m, Km 100.6), 8. Montauto (+, 13200 m, Km 120.3), 9. Monte Sante Marie (+, 11400 m, Km 134.5), 10. Guistrigona (+, 1100 m, Km 141.8), 11. Vagliagli (+, 9900 m, Km 160.5), 12. Cignano (+, 4300 m, Km 167.9), 13. Cogne (+, 4400 m, Km 177.9), 14. Bibbiano (+, 6100 m, Km 184.3), 15. Poggiarello (+, 2300 m, Km 188.6), 16. Pian di Campi (+, 3600 m, Km 193.9).

3)Milano Sanremo
Image
My first course for the Milano Sanremo is basically the same for the first 230 km. After that I have added La Crocetta, which is a climb similar to Le Manie, which was used from 2008 to 2013. Then I have swapped Capo Mele for Colla Michere which is steeper and shorter than the previous one. Then comes Capo Cervo and Capo Berta. The idea is that in this part of the race some of the weakest sprinters can have problems or they used too much energy staying with the pack. After 10 flat km comes Cipressa. I have used a different road to the top of the climb that is a bit shorter (4.7 km now vs 5.6 km previously) and steeper (4,8% now vs 4,1% previously), but it is not a massive difference. Then the race is exactly the same. I think these changes could give an attack at Cipressa or Poggio a better chance without fully eliminating the chance of a mass sprint (because of the last 35 km with only Cipressa, Poggio and a lot of flat terrain).

GPM: Passo del Turchino (545 m, 6.2 Km al 2.9%, Km 138.2), La Crocetta (351 m, 5.8 Km al 5.8%, Km 235.4), Colla Michere (172 m, 1.8 Km al 9.4%, Km 246.0), Capo Cervo (104 m, 2.9 Km al 3.4%, Km 253.3), Capo Berta (115 m, 2.3 Km al 4.8%, Km 260.8), Cipressa (237 m, 5.1 Km al 4.5%, Km 276.7), Poggio (164 m, 4.8 Km al 3.3%, Km 292.6).

4)Milano Sanremo
Image
If this spring race were to have such a dramatic change, droping the finish in Sanremo and swapping it for another city in another Italian region while keeping the characteristics of that race this would be a very good clone. I have changed Sanremo for Imola, which are roughly the same size. My Turchino lookalike is Montemaggiore, two tough final km preceded by some false flat terrain. The big difference is that my climb is closer to the finish and there is not a long descent after it. My copies of the three Capos are San Vittore, Monte Donato and Ponticella. These climbs are a bit tougher than the Capos, but not a lot more. To compensate for that, the distance from the last one to the penultimate climb is 7 km more. Liano and Cipressa are probably the best two matches I have found. Mine is slightly shorter and a bit steeper, but the overall difficulty is almost identical. The flat terrain form the end of its descent to the start of the final climb is the same. The last climb, Galiarda, is 0.9 km longer and 0.4% steeper than Poggio, but it does not feature any full km over 5%, and the distance from the top to the finish line is just 1.4 km more than in the riginal Sanremo, mostly due to the longer descent.
Distance Gradient Difficulty
Montemaggiore 1.83 Km 7.38 % 100 vs Turchino 2.9 Km 5.1% 75
San Vittore 3.36 Km 3.69 % 46 vs Capo Mele 1.7 Km 4.3% 31
Monte Donato 1.72 Km 5.93 % 62 vs Capo Cervo 2.0 Km 2.4% 7
Ponticella 1.5 Km 5.80 % 50 vs Capo Berta 1.9 Km 6.7% 85
Liano 4.41 Km 4.67 % 97 vs Cipressa 5.6 Km 4.1% 94
Gagliarda 4.61 Km 4.03 % 77 vs Poggio 3.7 Km 3.7% 50

5)Milano Sanremo
Image
What if we had to make a race like Milano Sanremo without both cities? My choice for the start has been Trieste and the finish Verona. My Turchino lookalike is Perarolo, two tough final km preceded by some false flat terrain. The big difference is that my climb is closer to the finish and there is not a long descent after it. My clones of the three Capos are Costeggiola, Colognola Ai Colli and Montelongo. These climbs are a bit tougher than the Capos, but not a lot more. Santa Giuliana and Cipressa are probably the best two matches I have found. Mine is slightly shorter and a bit steeper, but the overall difficulty is almost identical. The flat terrain form the end of its descent to the start of the final climb is the same. The last climb, Quinzano, is a bit shorter and a bit steeper than Poggio, but the overall difficulty is almost identical. The distance from the top of the last climb to the finish line is a bit shorter due to the shorter descent in my proposed route.
Distance Gradient Difficulty
Perarolo 7.44 Km 2.92 % 62 vs Turchino 2.9 Km 5.1% 75
Costegggiola 2.32 Km 5.40 % 68 vs Capo Mele 1.7 Km 4.3% 31
Colognola Ai Colli 2.12 Km 6.50 % 89 vs Capo Cervo 2.0 Km 2.4% 7
Montelongo 1.47 Km 5.50 % 44 vs Capo Berta 1.9 Km 6.7% 85
Santa Giuliana 4.70 Km 4.70 % 103 vs Cipressa 5.6 Km 4.1% 94
Quinzano 2.09 Km 5.20 % 56 vs Poggio 3.7 Km 3.7% 50

6)Gent Wegelmen
Image
My changes for this race are the following. First of all, I have put the start line back in Ghent. Secondly, I have included the cobbled climb of Cassel in the course. Thirdly, the MOST IMPORTANT CHANGE. As I was not allowed to do more loops and/or circuits around Kemmelberg, I have done a 17 km long circuit which includes the climbs of Catsberg, Kokereelberg (it is not the climb used in this race but a slightly longer one near it), Ver Mont and Ravel Put. This circuit is done 4 times and it significantly hardens the middle section of the race, which is the main aim of this proposed route. Then we enter a longer circuit (23 km), which includes the climbs of Blanchisserie, Baneberg and Kemmelberg. Lastly, I have shortened the distance between the summit of Kemmelberg and the finish line by using different roads than are also narrower and more exposed to the wind, so that the distance is just 30 km. I believe lapped riders will not be a problem because other races like Amstel Gold Race use shorter circuits on similar roads that are closer to the finish line. Moreover, because the first circuit does not interfere with the women and under 23 races and the second circuit is shorter than in the actual race, all three races could coexist more easily.

GPM: Côte de Le Coucou (103 m, 1.7 Km al 4.0%, Km 99.4), Cassel (149 m, 1.9 Km al 4.2%, Km 103.1), Catsberg (137 m, 2.0 Km al 4.6%, Km 120.7), Kokereelberg (135 m, 1.7 Km al 4.5%, Km 125.1), Côte du Ravel Put (128 m, 0.9 Km al 5.2%, Km 130.5), Catsberg (141 m, 4.7 Km al 2.1%, Km 137.5), Kokereelberg (135 m, 1.7 Km al 4.7%, Km 141.9), Côte du Ravel Put (128 m, 0.9 Km al 5.2%, Km 147.3), Catsberg (149 m, 4.7 Km al 2.3%, Km 154.4), Kokereelberg (135 m, 1.8 Km al 4.5%, Km 158.7), Côte du Ravel Put (128 m, 0.9 Km al 5.2%, Km 164.1), Catsberg (146 m, 1.0 Km al 4.7%, Km 171.2), Kokereelberg (135 m, 1.7 Km al 4.5%, Km 175.4), Côte du Ravel Put (128 m, 0.9 Km al 5.2%, Km 180.8), Côte de Blanchisserie (125 m, 2.7 Km al 3.5%, Km 187.0), Baneberg (134 m, 1.0 Km al 6.8%, Km 190.3), Kemmelberg (149 m, 0.8 Km al 9.0%, Km 195.1), Côte de Blanchisserie (125 m, 1.0 Km al 3.7%, Km 208.3), Baneberg (134 m, 1.0 Km al 6.8%, Km 211.6), Kemmelberg (149 m, 0.8 Km al 9.0%, Km 216.5).

7)Ronde Van Vlaanderen
Image
NOTE: Cobbled climbs are signaled this way (i.e, ::Koppenberg::).
We start this Full Ronde in Ypres. After 10 km we will head for the first sequence of climbs (Monteberg, Baneberg and Kemmelberg). Then we have 40-50 km of boring flat terrain which is inevitable. From Waregem to Oudenaarde we face one cobbled climb and two long cobbled sectors. Once we arrive in Oudenaarde we will face the first long sequence of climbs and cobbles, starting off with Katteberg, two cobbled sectors, then Molenberg, Leberg, Berendries, Valkenberg, Tenbosse and, finally, the Muur and Bosberg. After that we climb the Muur again and then come another easy 10 km before the last, most difficult, 80 km. The final sequence begins with Kanarieberg, then Kruisberg, Karnemelkbeek, and Kluisberg. Then come the final eight climbs, all have cobbled sections on them, except Kortekeer. Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg and the mighty Koppenberg is where I expect the main attacks will occur. Immediately after this trio come the slightly more modest climbs of Kortekeer, Steenbeekdries, Taaienberg, Eikenberg and Varentberg. But we are still not done here, because riders will have to deal with two flat cobbled sector. The last one, Kerkgate/Holleweg, is almost 4 km long and it ends just 4 km from the finish in Oudenaarde. The idea with my proposed route is that it becomes almost impossible to tackle the last 30 km in a relatively large group. In fact, I would not expect more than three riders together after the Koppenberg. Moreover, having the dangerous climb of Koppenberg so late (compared to current editions) is that the field will be a lot more spread, thus avoiding the chance of a traffic jam on its slopes.

8)Ronde Van Vlaanderen
Image
Similar to the previous one, but without the early climbs, which I have substituted for cobbled sectors. Also, I have not done a circuit around Muur and I have not included Koppenberg because I wanted Kappelmuur to be more important now that it is closer to the finish line. Apart from that, the second half of the race is almost identical.

9)Paris Roubaix
Image
This race includes 2 more 5 five sectors, totaling 5. I have included the required sector, Phalempin à Gondecourt, soon after Mons en Pévèle, followed shortly by another new five star sector, Avelin à Vendeville, which now plays the role of Mons en Pévèle. The rest of the route is similar to the real race. The downside is that Arenberg is 20 km farther from the finish line, but I think this is small inconvenience as this sector is not decisive.
SETTORI DI PAVE: 1. Troisvilles à Viesly (++++, 4800 m, Km 102.1), 2. Viesly à Quiévy (+++, 1900 m, Km 104.9), 3. Quiévy à Saint-Python (++++, 3600 m, Km 109.4), 4. Saint-Python (++, 1500 m, Km 111.9), 5. Vertain à St-Martin-sur-Ecaillon (+++, 2400 m, Km 120.0), 6. Verchain-Maugré à Quérénaing (+++, 2600 m, Km 129.4), 7.

10)Paris Roubaix
Image
It is already insulting for the French to host the Paris Roubaix race outside of France, but it is even more insulting to host it on the surroundings of Waterloo, near the actual battlefield where the French Army under the command of Napoleon was infamously defeated. The actual course I have proposed is different from the Paris Roubaix course. My cobbled sectors are usually longer but much easier than the French ones. To compensate for that, there are a lot more sectors in my race, and the length of them is greater. Almost one third of the route is cobbled! Moreover, they are more spread out along the route, unlike in the real Paris Roubaix, where they are concentrated on the second half. They key part of the race is located between 80 and 50 km from the finish line, where we find six consecutive 3 and 4 star sectors with few paved km between each other. The rest of the next 11 sectors are easier, although there are few paved km between them. However, the last demanding sector is the penultimate, Chemin de la Sablonnière, with four stars, and it is located just 8 km from the finish line, which is located on the streets of Waterloo.

Rue du Dimont (+, 1500 m, Km 238.7).

11)Amstel Gold Race
Image
The first 200 km are similar to the current route, although there are now more hills. The last 50 km have eleven hills, starting with the steepest of them all, the Keutenberg. With a race as complicated as the Amstel Gold Race you never know when and where there would be attacks, but surely the climbs with the most potential are the Eyserbosweg and the Doode Man, which would be now just 25 and 20 km from the finish line. After the descent of the Doode Man, there would be 18 km to go and thre more climbs to be dealt with, Sibbergrubbe, Cauberg and Geulhemmerberg. The summit of the last one is just 4.5 km from Maastricht.

The upside of this alternative route is that without eliminating Ardenne classics specialists, which would still be favourites, there would be a chance for cobbled classics rides and GT riders as well.

12)Fleche Wallonne
Image
I have included a circuit around Huy with more demanding climbs than the current race. The riders will have to do it 3 times. Mur de Huy is now the penultimate climb, and the race ends in another climb which is less hard than the previous ones, so that will hopefully open up possibilities for attacks on the previous climbs.
GPM: Côte d'Aiseau (189 m, 2.0 Km al 4.1%, Km 27.3), Côte de franière (193 m, 2.1 Km al 4.7%, Km 43.9), Citadelle de Namur (190 m, 2.1 Km al 4.8%, Km 61.2), Côte de Vezin (171 m, 3.2 Km al 3.0%, Km 81.5), Côte de Landenne (168 m, 2.8 Km al 3.2%, Km 87.0), Côte de Sur-les-Més (212 m, 3.6 Km al 3.7%, Km 93.9), Côte de Cherave (174 m, 1.6 Km al 5.9%, Km 106.7), Mur de Huy (247 m, 3.6 Km al 4.7%, Km 112.2), Côte de Marchin (258 m, 2.7 Km al 4.0%, Km 123.2), Côte de Belle Maison (248 m, 1.1 Km al 6.3%, Km 125.9), Côte de Bellegrade (231 m, 2.9 Km al 4.2%, Km 132.6), Côte de Cherave (201 m, 1.1 Km al 8.6%, Km 135.5), Mur de Huy (247 m, 3.7 Km al 4.7%, Km 141.5), Côte de Marchin (257 m, 2.6 Km al 4.0%, Km 152.4), Côte de Belle Maison (248 m, 1.1 Km al 6.4%, Km 155.2), Côte de Bellegrade (231 m, 2.9 Km al 4.2%, Km 161.9), Côte de Cherave (202 m, 1.2 Km al 8.4%, Km 164.8), Mur de Huy (247 m, 3.7 Km al 4.7%, Km 170.8), Côte de Marchin (257 m, 2.6 Km al 4.0%, Km 181.7), Côte de Belle Maison (248 m, 1.1 Km al 6.4%, Km 184.5), Côte de Bellegrade (231 m, 2.9 Km al 4.2%, Km 191.2), Côte de Cherave (202 m, 1.2 Km al 8.4%, Km 194.0), Mur de Huy (219 m, 2.5 Km al 5.8%, Km 198.9), Mont Saint Étienne (152 m, 1.8 Km al 4.7%, Arrivo).

13)Fleche Wallonne
Image
I have created this roller coaster of a course on the Ardennes. The hardest climbs are in the middle of the race, so breakaways could become very dangerous for the peloton. The last climbs are shorter, but all of them include some difficult steep sections. There is little flat kms in the final part, and as the last two climbs are not too hard, riders will have to be on the attack much sooner.
GPM: Côte de Sur-les-Més (205 m, 3.3 Km al 3.9%, Km 3.8), Côte de Cherave (205 m, 2.2 Km al 5.9%, Km 19.0), Mur de Huy (246 m, 3.5 Km al 4.9%, Km 24.9), Côte de Filot (290 m, 3.6 Km al 4.7%, Km 52.0), Côte de Werbomont (444 m, 7.5 Km al 3.2%, Km 63.4), Côte de Haute Bodeux (492 m, 4.7 Km al 4.7%, Km 72.9), Côte des Quartiers (481 m, 4.8 Km al 3.7%, Km 84.0), Côte de Wanne (486 m, 3.7 Km al 4.5%, Km 91.3), Côte de Thier de Coo (461 m, 2.8 Km al 7.3%, Km 102.5), Côte de la Haute-Levée (497 m, 4.3 Km al 4.6%, Km 109.6), Côte du Rosier (552 m, 4.6 Km al 5.0%, Km 120.2), Côte de la Vecquée (511 m, 5.8 Km al 4.4%, Km 134.1), Côte de Lorcé (410 m, 4.9 Km al 4.5%, Km 147.8), Côte de Stockeu (319 m, 2.8 Km al 5.3%, Km 158.5), Côte de Florzé (298 m, 2.4 Km al 7.0%, Km 164.9), Côte de Hôyemont (292 m, 3.3 Km al 3.4%, Km 172.2), Côte de Fraiture (258 m, 1.7 Km al 5.3%, Km 178.2), Côte de Lincé (270 m, 2.9 Km al 4.7%, Km 184.4), Côte de Plainevaux (262 m, 4.4 Km al 3.9%, Km 198.2), Côte de Seraing (231 m, 2.3 Km al 4.4%, Arrivo).

14)Liège Bastogne Liège
Image
GPM: Côte de Colonster (267 m, 5.6 Km al 3.5%, Km 7.6), Côte de Fontin (238 m, 3.1 Km al 4.8%, Km 18.7), Côte d'Hôyemont (262 m, 1.9 Km al 7.3%, Km 32.9), Côte de Manhay (480 m, 8.9 Km al 3.1%, Km 64.9), Côte de La Roche-en-Ardenne (430 m, 6.6 Km al 3.1%, Km 93.5), Côte de Saint-Roch (436 m, 1.2 Km al 6.8%, Km 132.8), Côte de Wanne (478 m, 3.6 Km al 4.4%, Km 170.8), Côte de Thier de Coo (396 m, 1.3 Km al 10.7%, Km 180.4), Côte de Stockeu (393 m, 1.1 Km al 9.6%, Km 185.3), Côte de Bellevaux (424 m, 1.8 Km al 5.7%, Km 195.1), Côte des Combes (477 m, 1.9 Km al 7.2%, Km 201.9), Côte du Rosier (560 m, 4.4 Km al 5.6%, Km 215.5), Côte du Maquisard (364 m, 2.3 Km al 5.9%, Km 228.1), Côte de la Redoute (302 m, 2.0 Km al 8.3%, Km 240.4).
I have done 3 important changes to this race. First of all, I have hardened the route from the start, adding serious climbs before arriving in Bastogne. Secondly, I have made minor improvements on the part between Saint Roch and Wanne and I have substituted some of the longer climbs in the middle of the race for more, shorter and steeper climbs. The idea is to harden the last 100 km. Thirdly, I have tried to make La Redoute the key climb again by eliminating other climbs like Roche aux Faucons and Saint Nicolas that overshadow La Redoute and make riders more conservative. After La Redoute, which is now just 25 km from the finish line, comes Sprinmont, as usual, then they will tackle Rue de la Drève, a 0.6 km long with an average gradient of 10%, and finally Beaufays (1,5 km at 6,2%).
