The Commonwealth Games and Euro Champs were good races, but it would be a bit much if they re-used the same course for a third time.

    Why?
    The classics use more or less the same course every year.

    It's a good course (been used for *gb champs as well), and it's harder than it looks on paper.

    The Worlds aren't just another classic though. It just feels a bit cheap re-using the same course (if that's what they do) three times in under ten years and makes the race a bit less special imo.

    On that course, the quality of the race would also be very dependent on the weather, I guess. The wet races were really good, but I doubt it would be the same on dry roads.
