    8.8km ITT is too short !

    8.8 x 2 = 17.6 km
    8.8 x 3 = 26.4 km
    8.8 x 4 = 35.2 km
    8.8 x 5 = 44 km

    It is still possible to make the race longer,
    at only 9 km it will only take a rider about 10 minutes to ride.

    To have an effect on GC the race should be at least 30 km long.
