Description of the race course:

This race runs through the classic smooth landscape of Läänemaa along smaller winding roads. If the Haapsalu Road Race were to receive a superlative title, it would most likely be named the flattest or most even cycling race course in Estonia. If it weren't for an old railway overpass on the race course, the race profile would be almost entirely flat. The course is rather winding and windy though. In calm weather the group will stay together and will most likely finish as a group. Should the weather be windy, the strong crosswinds will split the peloton into smaller groups. The short race will cover the distance once, the long race will do it twice, without turning towards the finish at the crossroads when starting the second lap.
