Participants34 from 19 countries

Abdon Pamich had hoped to win this event in 1960 in his home country, but had to settle for a bronze medal. By 1964 he was favored, having won the 1962 European Championships, and he would win that title again in 1966. The race was fairly close. Pamich was in the lead group from the beginning but did not open a gap until 40 km. Paul Nihill (GBR) could not be shaken and won the silver medal only 19 seconds behind.
