In sweltering conditions in Qatar, Dowsett completed the 40km route in 46:54.07 - around two minutes behind the eventual winner Tony Martin.
"It was alright for me. I think I managed myself well and I’m not sure I could have done a lot more," he told British Cycling.

Laura Trott has won Great Britain's first gold of the Track Cycling World Championships in London with victory in the women's scratch race.
Hertfordshire's two-time Olympic champion put the disappointment of fifth-place in team pursuit qualifying earlier today behind her to win the non-Olympic discipline.
It was Harlow-born Trott's sixth world title and second individual honour. Her only prior individual win was in the omnium at the 2012 World Championships in Melbourne.
Trott had been a team pursuit winner at four successive World Championships from 2011 to 2014 until having to settle for silver 12 months ago.
She can win bronze at best tomorrow in the team pursuit after a disappointing qualifying ride.
