Track description:

The Fakto Auto Tallinn Cycling Race track has a fairly even profile characteristic to North Estonia. The race centre, start and finish are located on Valukoja street in Ülemiste City. Riders leave the city along Suur-Sõjamäe street and pass through Lagedi and Jüri to start the lap. The only hills on the track, even though they are quite small, are located on the farthest part of the lap between Peningi and Vaida. The roads chosen for the race have as little traffic as possible. Riders can expect to see the most traffic on Suur-Sõjamäe street and between Jüri and Aruküla. The road cover varies a lot. The area closest to the start, the unrenovated part of Suur-Sõjamäe street, has the worst road cover on the track. Even though there are no large hills in this race, there are plenty of road sections that are open to strong winds. Despite this a group finish can still be expected.
