1983 Amateur World Championships

With so many cyclist names to choose from, we have included the Start List from our leading cycling photographer Werner Möller for the latest in his photo series: the 1983 Amateur World Championships. The 1983 UCI Road World Championships took place on 4 September, 1983 in Altenrhein, Switzerland. Uwe Raab of East Germany won the race, with Niki Rüttimann of Switzerland in second, and Andrzej Serediuk of Poland taking the third position.




1978 Professional World Championships

On the wheel of the 1978 Amateur World Championship photos in our Werner Möller cycling photo gallery series, we bring you the 1978 UCI Professional Road World Championships. Taking place in August 1978 in Nürburging, West Germany, this incredibly tight race ended on the finish line between Gerrie Knetemann and Francesco Moser, and was so close that it required a photo finish to determine the winner.

The cyclist from Ireland with #64 later headed up UCI: former UCI President Pat Mc Quaid. Also of note: see if you can pick out Paul Sherwen in this photo series, who later became a cycling sports commentator for NBC.

Take a look at the names included in this start list roster, an incredible part of cycling history!




1978 Amateur World Championships

Werner Möller brings us photos from the 1978 Amateur World Championships in Nürburgring, West Germany, with a portion of the course being famous as the Nürburgring Formula One racing circuit. Gilbert Glaus of Switzerland became the 1978 Amateur World Champion, with Krzysztof Sujka of Poland in second place, and Stefan Mutter of Switzerland taking third. Glaus became a professional cyclist in 1982. In 1983, Glaus won a stage in the 1983 Tour de France, but in the 1984 Tour de France he was the Lanterne rouge (the last finishing cyclist). He was the Swiss National Road Race champion in 1982.[1] He also competed in the individual road race and team time trial events at the 1980 Summer Olympics.


100km Team Time Trial World Championships 1978

Here are a series of Werner Möller photos from the 100km Team Time Trials for the World Championships in 1978. Held in  Köln-Brauweiler, the route for this year was 98.2km, as you will see from the results sheet in the last photo. Also, notice the French team and the larger chainring they used for the time trials.

I have a great appreciation for the 100km TTT event as my father won this event as a junior representing the Province of Veneto in 1954 for the Italian Championships. I, too, have ridden this event, and believe was one of the most demanding events ever. These photos are a great glimpse into cycling history, as this event is no longer held.
