- Glasgow at Expo Real 2019
The UCI is delighted to announce that Glasgow and Scotland have been awarded the inaugural UCI Cycling World Championships.
The historic and innovative event will take place over two weeks in August 2023. It will bring together 13 UCI World Championships for different cycling disciplines in one unprecedented event that will see thousands of the world’s best cyclists vying to win the prestigious rainbow jersey.
Glasgow and Scotland have considerable experience organising international cycling events including annual rounds of the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup and the 2007 UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships in Fort William, and the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup and the cycling competitions of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Today’s announcement follows months of collaboration between the UCI, EventScotland, Glasgow Life, UK Sport and British Cycling.
Glasgow’s existing world-class cycling infrastructure – such as the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome and the Glasgow BMX Centre – enables Glasgow and Scotland to host the UCI Cycling World Championships without the necessity to build new venues.
From 2023, the UCI Cycling World Championships will be held every four years, in each pre-Summer Olympic year. Over several weeks, the host city and/or region will become the true cycling capital of the world. Images broadcast worldwide will showcase the region to all corners of the globe, while the tens of thousands of visitors will boost tourism.
