The 2016 UCI World Road Championships wrapped up Sunday in Doha, Qatar, with Slovakian Peter Sagan pulling off a momentous second straight win. That triumph punctuated a big week for bike maker Specialized, which scored nine podium placings, including six golds.

The final dash to the finish in Doha saw Sagan defend his world title. It was the first time a rider has won two straight since Paolo Bettini in 2006-07. Photo courtesy Specialized

It started with the elite women and elite men lining up for the team time trial, where Boels-Dolmans (women) and Etixx-Quick-Step (men) each took top honors. A few days later, Maximilian Schachmann (Klein Constantia) placed second in the under 23 time trial. Next, Brandon McNulty won the TT in the men's juniors, while Ellen Van Dijk took silver in the women's junior TT.

Tony Martin stepped up next, winning another time trial crown, 45seconds ahead of Vasil Kiryienka, both Specialized bike riders. Finally, Amalie Dideriksen brought another rainbow jersey home at the end of the 134.5km women's elite road race, before Sagan made it two in a row.
