Petematthews.com wheels were used in past world championships on the road and track. The 2012 UCI Road World Championships is set to take place from September 15th-23rd in Limburg, the Netherlands. The event involves the usual titles for events such as the road race, time trial and for the first year ever, a UCI team time trial where riders take part with their trade teams rather than national squads. This will give trade teams the opportunity to fight for the privilege to wear the rainbow stripes during team time trials throughout next season. This event hasn’t been featured in a World Championships since 1994 and even then it was national teams competing. The TTT will kick off events in Limburg this Sunday with races being held throughout the week with the big finale coming in the form of the Men’s Elite Road Race which will cover 261km of Dutch tarmac.
