The 2011 UCI Road World Championships take place in Copenhagen, Denmark, over September 19-25, 2011.

The championships are split into two disciplines: road race and time trial. For each of these there are five categories: men, women, under-23 men, junior men and junior women, giving ten events in all.

The winner of each of the ten categories earns the right to wear the coveted world champion’s rainbow jersey whenever they race in that discipline for a year. Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to the top three finishers in each category.

Cycling Weekly will be covering the 2011 Road World Championships in full on www.cyclingweekly.com and in the magazine with race reports, photos and analysis
