The 2007 UCI Indoor Cycling World Championships took place in Winterthur in switzerland from the 9 to 11 November and crowned world champions in the cycling disciplines of cycle ball and artistic cycling. Germany managed to get all seven gold medals at this championship and won 11 medals in total - including all three in men's single artistic cycling.

In total 144 athletes out of 21 nations took part in the competition. The participating nations were all from Europe and Asia, except for a Tchad starting Czech team.


The idea to give Winterthur another world championship indoor cycling after the one in 1997 came from Marianne Kern, member of the RMV Pfungen and member of the management board of Swiss Cycling for indoor cycling. After the candidature of Winterthur was made public the other candidates revoke their candidatures so that Winterthur could perform the World Championship. The whole event had a budget of 750'000 swiss francs - after the end of the WC they made a profit of 29'600 SFr.[1]
