Gold Medal Winner,  Mads Würtz Schmidt, Denmark:
"It was a very hot seat - but I made it. It is the biggest day of my life. I haven't realized yet that I´m actually world champion - I think it will take me some days to realize. I knew I had the fastest time at every time check - I had Morten Bennekou (junior coach) in the car behind me and he told me. I wasn´t worried about the speed - actually I increased the speed through the race. It is just amazine - it is unbelievable".

Silver Medal, James Oram, New Zealand:
"I always go to races with the ambitions to win. To be in the hot seat pretty much all day and still end up on the podium is amazing, I couldn't have asked for more. I´m over the moon actually. I came to the Worlds with the expectation of being extremely happy to finish in the top five.

Bronze Medal, David Edwards, Australia:
"I am really happy about my bronze medal - I was a very good nice circuit, there were parts with wind and other parts with no wind and there were many technical turns. I liked racing inside the city - the crowds were amazing".
