Description of the race course:

Elva circuit is in many ways an average race course - moderately hilly, moderately windy, moderately winding. Therefore it has something to offer for all types of cyclists - those who like ascents as well as those who like smooth sections with crosswinds. The highlight of the circuit is the last 5 kilometres. In this section the course ascends and ascends, culminating in a hilltop finish at the edge of Elva. This makes Elva one of the most diverse races in the series.
