The 2016 Road World Championships have moved from the trade team Team Time Trial, and into the national team events, starting with the Individual Time Trials. Two women’s races, over two days – here’s my collection of videos, photos and media from the Juniors and then the Elites. As always, I’ll edit in more as I see it – if you see fun things I’ve missed, please let me know in the comments or on twitter.

First race at the #ucidoha2016 junior road world championships done! Not quite the result I was looking for but I gave it my all in this wicked heat🔥🔥🔥 was definitely in the pain cave when this shot was taken. What an amazing learning experience.

Love this photo of Maaike Polspoel
After the race, one of the big favourites for the Junior Road Race, Susanne Andersen, was hit by a car in Doha – heal fast, Susanne!
This scary experience happened in the U23 men’s ITT – yikes

This picture pretty much sums it up, the heat got the better of me today! Some races just don't go according to plan. Super happy for teammate Amber Neben to take the win. I'm bummed but need to move on, one more hot race on Saturday. Send cooling thoughts! @cannondalepro @cylancecycling #worldchampionships #Qatar
My collection of media from the Team Time Trial is here, and I’ll be back with the Road Race over the weekend – and I’ll be posting things on my Women’s Cycling Tumblr, and on my twitter, as I see them.
My guide to watching the rest of the 2016 Road World Cycling Championships junior and elite road races, which includes how to get round any pesky geo-restrictions – huge thanks to my wonderful Patreon supporters, who fund my women’s cycling work.
