21st Deaflympic Games at Taipei, Taiwan|
Bobby Skedsmo, ICSD Technical Director, visited Taipei, Taiwan for a venue inspection on October 5-10, 2008. This is a mascot of 2009 Taipei Games.
One afternoon, Bobby visited a venue of both road race and individual time trail at the north coast.
Bobby and his technical fellows reviewed the map of where the cycling events will take place.
This is where the start/finish line will take place for both road race and individual time trial at the Chin Shan Youth Activity Center.
At the side of start/finish line is where the nation stations will take place.
From the view of the start/finish line, you will see the mountain range as the background which is where the road race will reach at the end of the course. That will be an one-lap race and the elevation is 325 meters.
Bobby discussed with the people of organising committee at the venue.
