It's a 276.5km of racing that includes a 19.1km circuit. Before the riders hit the finishing circuit, they must bump their way along 40 kilometres of islands from Rong in western Norway. The circuit is dominated by a climb, named  Mount Ulriken (or Salmon Hill). The first 500m are 7.8% and there is then a kilometre at 6%, before the descent back into the city centre. After this technical descent, the last 5 kilometres go to the seafront and then back again,but the road is well protected and winds should not play a big role. There's also a 700m stretch with cobbles before a flat-out sprint to the finish line.

There are some similarities between Sunday’s race and the closing kilometres of Milan-San Remo. That race normally finishes in a reduced bunch sprint and Sunday’s World Championship seems likely to as well.

Peter Sagan has won the last two editions of the WOrld Championship - a tough and hilly puncheur’s finish (Richmond 2015) and a sprint in Qatar last year - and is the odds on favourite to make a hat-trick. The Slovak has been in good form during the second half the year, winning the GP De Quebec and two stages of the Binckbank Tour. He is certainly capable of winning on Sunday in a sprint, likewise if he decides to try and get away on the last time up Salmon Hill

Michael Matthews has finished second and fourth in the last two World Championship road races. The Australian has won two stages of the Tour de France and the points classification, was third at RideLondon and at the GP de Quebec. Matthews’ biggest challenge will be overcoming Sagan. In fact, on the 32 occasions the pair have both finished in the top 10 on a stage or in a one-day race, the Slovak has come out on top 25 times, taking 17 wins in the process.

Another strong contenders is Greg Van Avermaet, who was in stunning form during the Spring Classics and geared up for the race with second-place at the GP de Quebec.

His teammate and countryman Philippe Gilbert has been quiet during the summer but it's clear that he’s been preparing for this for a long time and an attritional race will make him a very strong option. The likes of Oliver Naesen, Jasper Stuyven, Dylan Teuns, Tiesj Benoot, Julian Vermote and Tim Wellens make Belgium the strongest team in the race.

Norway have two main hopes - Alexander Kristoff and Edvald Boasson Hagen. The former won the points competition at the Tour of Britain, while the latter finished the same race in style, soloing to the win, and almost the overall, in Cardiff. Boasson Hagen could be a contender in either a bunch sprint or with a late escape, but he and European champion Kristoff will need to work well together.

As for Great Britain Mark Cavendish, who has missed most of this season with either illness or injury, and Chris Froome are not in the selection here. Representing GB will be Adam Blythe, Mark Christian, Jon Dibben, Owain Doull, Tao Geoghegan Hart, Peter Kennaugh, Ian Stannard, Ben Swift, Scott Thwaites. No one of these riders look a serious contender in a race like this one.

France’s best option from a strong squad might well be Julian Alaphilippe, who recently won a stage in the Vuelta after missing the Tour De France. He might enjoy the latter sections of the circuit more than Tony Gallopin.

Fernando Gaviria has won twice already this month, once at the Tour of Britain and then at the Kampioenschap van Vlaanderen. He would want a reduced sprint but will have to navigate this without chief lead-out man Maximiliano Richeze.

Milan-San Remo winner Michal Kwiatkowski will also be one to watch as well as the Kazakh Alexey Lutsenko and the Swiss Michael Albasini.

Outside bets would also include Elia Viviani, who enjoyed himself at the Tour of Britain. Viviani’s Italian team-mate Matteo Trentin is also on form, after winning four stages of the Vuelta a Espana and then the Primus Classic, but will face a strong sprinting line-up in Bergen. Gianni Moscon is the other option for Italy in case of breakaways.
