After gaining six silvers and a bronze across all disciplines at world championships (including silver at women's elite time-trial a few days earlier), Anna van der Breggen (Netherlands) finally took gold at the 2019 UCI Road World Championships road race. She will wear the rainbow jersey next season.

Van der Breggen followed Marc Kirschi (Switzerland) in Austria, who won the under-23 men's race, by winning the world championship title racing on a disc brake-equipped bike.

Van der Breggen became the Olympic champion in 2016, with her custom-painted Specialized S-Works Tarmac Disc commemorating the victory with a gold design overlaid onto a black-metallic base-coat.

The Specialized is paired with finishing kit and components from SRAM, Zipp and Quarq.

A gearing combination of 53/39 and 11-30 was used by van der Breggen on the hilly world's course in Austria.
