    2013 World Championships - Men's Elite Road Race

    Not too early to have some fun and speculate about it.
    I'm excited, it's a good, solid road course with a resulting 10 lap loop in Firenze which has a solid 240m uphill/climb with a nasty bump directly there after.
    Actually looks like a solid course for Sagan... as well as many other solid roadmen, although he may not be tough enough yet. I mean, even a guy like Thor, if he gets in form, could possibly do this one. Not likely to be a pure sprinter's course - thank god...
    272.5 km - brutale - a nice pinch of GIRO type sufferin thrown in
    Gonna be a great race

    cyclingnews: "There are more than 3000m of climbing, as much as in a mountain stage at the Giro d'Italia or the Tour de France. The total distance during the 11 circuits around Florence in the Elite men's race add up to 58.650km of climbing or 30% of the distance covered on the circuit."

    Hate to speculate (lol). Froome's a climber, in form, he's got a chance. Rodriguez, Nibali, Contador... if? Wiggins will concentrate on the TT
