Trends / Predictions

⦿ European countries have dominated the UCI World Road Championships, winning most of the medals on offer. The most successful country is Italy with 50 golds and 135 total medals, followed by Belgium, France and the Netherlands. Recent competitions have become more parity, with the United States and Australia challenging the Europeans for podium finishes. However, Europeans do perform better when one of their countries hosts the world championships.

Predicted Medal Standings: 1. Germany | 2. United States | 3. Norway

⦿ The United States have enjoyed great success in the juniors and women's events. Last year in Doha, the U.S. won two golds and five total medals -- all but one came from these events. Two years ago in Richmond, Team USA dominated the juniors events winning six medals and two golds. Since this year's worlds will be in Europe, the Americans will face much stiffer challenge from home-happy Europeans. But the general trend for the United States is upward.

Projected performance (USA): 2 golds, 5 total medals
