9 days. 12 championship races.

The Worlds, Sept. 19-27, is a rare opportunity for men and women to compete for their country, just as they do during the Olympic Games. The cyclists compete in three different disciplines including the traditional Road Race, the Individual Time Trial and the Team Time Trial. World champions are crowned in each discipline.
