Just like Chloe Dygert at the 2015 Worlds, Elena Pirrone completed the junior women's time trial and road race double. The 18-year-old Italian doubled up with a late attack netting her the Road World Championships title ahead of Denmark's Emma Norsgaard Jorgensen.

Letizia Paternoster claimed the bronze medal to ensure a successful junior Worlds for the Italian women's team. For France, it was a disappointing outcome to the race as they placed three riders in the top-ten but missed the medals.
