Where: Richmond, USA
When: September 19-27 2015

The 2015 UCI Road Cycling World Championships in Richmond, Virginia, reached a stunning climax with two thrilling road races — the women’s event won by Lizzie Armitstead (Great Britain) and the men’s by Peter Sagan (Slovakia).

Among the other leading performers were American junior rider Chloe Dygert, who completed the double of road race and time trial.

The men’s elite time trial had a surprise winner when Vasil Kiryienka of Belarus took victory.

Winners of the senior individual time trial and road race earn the right to wear the coveted rainbow jersey of world champion for the following 12 months in that discipline.
