While the Greek and Spanish national championships were a success for Euskaltel, the French, Slovenian and German equivalents were anything but.
Ioannis Tamouridis almost doubled Euskaltel's 2013 win count with victory both against the clock and in the road race, and Ion Izagirre grabbed silver in the road race and a strong fourth in the crono. No such results were forthcoming elsewhere, though.
Romain Sicard failed to figure in the fight for the tricolour jersey, finishing some eight minutes down on victor Arthur Vichot in 74th place. In Germany meanwhile, Steffen Radochla came in 91st out of the 101 riders who finished the race, while André Schulze failed to finish.
In Slovenia, the full results are yet to come through, but Robert Vrecer was not among the top eight finishers. Luka Pibernik won the event.
