As many of you may recall, there was much speculation about the 2016 Masters World Championships and where (or whether) they were going to be held, including possibly in San Jose, CA.

It was quite a roller coaster, for athletes, promoters, governing bodies and reporters. First, the semi-official announcement came out with promoter Murphy Mack and USA Cycling stating that it was going to be held in San Jose, CA for both the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Then, the announcement came that it was cancelled, or perhaps postponed until 2017 to be paired with the 2017 Reno Nationals.

Ultimately, the UCI found a new host and insured the 2016 event would be held, albeit 11 months later in December, and the new event location was an old location, in Mol, Belgium.

With that whirlwind process in the rear view mirror, racers had nearly a full year to prepare for the 2016 event, and the racing has finally begun.

See the full results below, and check out the full Women’s results from Day 1. Tomorrow’s results will feature Masters Men, ages 30-54.
