The road racing kicked off this year with the Julie Bego capturing the junior women's road race title after a late-race solo attack to beat solo on the finishing circuits to beat Britain's Cat Ferguson and Belgium’s Fleur Moors. In the junior men's road race, Albert Philipsen of Denmark took a stunning solo win as Paul Fietzke (Germany) claimed silver and Felix Ørn-Kristoff (Norway)  bronze.

In one of the most captivating performances this week, Mathieu van der Poel of the Netherlands soloed to victory in the elite men's road race despite a late crash. Wout van Aert of Belgian took silver, while Tadej Pogačar (Slovenia) secured bronze.

The road events then turned to the Team Time Trial Mixed Relay where Switzerland overcame a crash to win the world title for a second year in a row, narrowly beating France and Germany.

The road events continued with the individual time trials from August 9-11, while the under-23 men's and elite/under-23 women's road races close out the World Championships on August 12-13.

Italy’s Lorenzo Milesi took a close victory in the under-23 men's individual time trial beating Belgium’s Alec Segaert and Australia's Hamish McKenzie.

In a stunning performance, Chloé Dygert (USA) reclaimed her position as the fastest individual time triallist in the world, securing her second elite women's rainbow jersey in the discipline just days after winning the Individual Pursuit world title. Antonia Niedermaier (Germany) was the fastest under-23 rider to cross the line in the combined race. Felicity Wilson-Haffenden won the junior women’s time trial title.

Remco Evenepoel smashed the elite men's individual time trial to claim the world title ahead of Italy’s Filippo Ganna and Great Britain's Josh Tarling in Stirling, becoming the first-ever Belgian to win the elite men's rainbow jersey in the discipline. Australia's Oscar Chamberlain won the junior men's time trial world title beating Great Britain’s Ben Wiggins and Germany’s Louis Leidert.

France’s Axel Laurance took a solo flyer on the penultimate lap to claim the rainbow jersey in the under-23 men's road race. Antonio Morgado (Portugal) won the sprint for the silver medal ahead of Martin Svrcek (Slovakia).

Belgian's Lotte Kopecky attacked with 5.5 km to go on the climb of Scott Street to win elite women’s road race despite being marked the whole day.  Demi Vollering (Netherlands) outsprinted Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (Denmark) in the sprint for second place, 7 seconds down on Kopecky. 

Blanka Vas outsprinted Shirin van Anrooij (Netherlands) to win the under-23 title and the first-ever rainbow jersey for Hungary. Anna Shackley (Great Britain) claimed the bronze medal.
