MORE ABOUT THE TERRAIN
Chalkidiki is located in a hilly region, so expect some "nice" climbs!
The ITT course is for specialist, so the fast riders: basically an out and back on a straight road, gently uphill first then downhill back into town! Bring your disc wheel!
The Road races are around 100km long and have some gradual climbs and some nice descends as well.
