David Brailsford called Great Britain's performance at the World Championships in Copenhagen one of the most dominant in years. The team's work led to the first elite men's road race gold medal for Britain since Tom Simpson's 46 years ago.

"Doubts? No. Not with the strength of the team, it was by far the strongest team and was one of the most dominant team performances you've seen at the World Championships," said British Cycling's performance director, Brailsford.
