Beryl Burton won the women's world title twice in the 1960s before Mandy Jones won on home soil at Goodwood in 1982. Tom Simpson was Britain's first men's world road race champion, winning his rainbow jersey in the Basque Country in 1965.

Dave Marsh won the world road race championship for amateurs in Liverpool in 1922, when British riders won gold, silver and bronze. Graham Webb was amateur road race champion in 1967 - the most astonishing thing being that his victory came on the same day as Burton's win in the women's race

Chris Boardman won the first ever world individual time trial title in Sardinia in 1994 when the UCI introduced the event to the World Championship programme.

Nicole Cooke added to the tally in 2008 by winning the road race, with Emma Pooley taking the time trial in 2010, Mark Cavendish the road race in 2011, Bradley Wiggins winning the time trial title in 2014 and Lizzie Armitstead winning the women's road race in 2015.
