And so it ends: eight magnificent days of racing around stunning Innsbruck, Austria, where the world champions in the disciplines of time trialling and road racing, at junior, under-23 and elite levels, were crowned.
The new world champions now have 12 months as custodians of their rainbow jerseys before we do it all again in Harrogate, Yorkshire, in the UK.
Can the Dutch women's team dominate again, as they have at the championships for the past two years? Will Spain's Alejandro Valverde still have the hunger, and indeed the legs, to defend his title, or will we see 2015, 2016 and 2017 road race world champion Peter Sagan take back 'his' rainbow jersey? And what kind of progression will we see from the junior riders, like Remco Evenepoel, who won both the time trial and the road race in the junior men's category?
In the meantime, enjoy our gallery of the best pictures from the 2018 UCI Road World Championships in Innsbruck.
