As always, Germany won, although it was much closer than it had been in 1992. That year the margin was almost 500 points over the Netherlands, and while the Dutch team finished second again, in 1996 they trailed by only 116 points. In fact, Dutch riders [Anky van Grunsven] and Sven Rothenberger placed 2-3 in the individual event. Rothenberger was born in Germany as were two of the riders for the third-placed American team, Guenter Seidel and Steffen Peters. Germany would continue winning this event thru 2008.
