Divide the TT into parts, First part go easier than you think you can hold for the entire time (so a little under fTP) Second third, bump it to the effort you plan to hold. Third, third, gradually ramp it up until you die at the line.
As for the profile of the course, it only looks hilly because the graph compresses 40 kilometers. Thebiggest elevation change is less than 250 feet
When it is uphill, you can go over FTP, and recover on the downhills. You get more time gain from each watt of output on the uphill. So it's better to go slightly above what you can sustain on the climbing, and not push so much downhill.
