UCI was founded in Paris in 1900 the organisation is now based in Aigle, Switzerland and is recognised by the International Olympic Committee. Its goal is to set the regulations for the competitive aspects of cycling and oversee their enforcement. Its purview covers aspects from racing all the way to anti-doping and equipment.
This year they decided to create a new event:the UCI Urban Cycling World Championship, which was included in the calendar and brought together the following events:
- Mountain Bike Eliminator
- Mountain Bike Trials
- BMX Freestyle Park.
Mountain bike trials is a discipline of mountain biking in which the rider attempts to pass through an obstacle course without setting foot to ground. It was derived from the equivalent motorcycle trials and it originated in Catalonia, Spain.
Freestyle BMX is bicycle motocross stunt riding on BMX bikes. It is an extreme sport derived from BMX racing that consists of five disciplines: street, park, vert, trails, and flatland. Competitors here are judged on tricks performed throughout the course, receiving points awarded based on difficulty, originality, style and execution amongst other criteria.
The mountain bike eliminator is a new format in which four riders compete against each other in heats similar to Four-cross. The two fastest riders advance to the next round while the two slower riders are eliminated from the race.
One event – three World Championship titles! It will be available in an annual World Championship format as of 2017.
The International Cyclist Union has not previously crown a world champion in freestyle BMX as the discipline received UCI World Cup status only last year.
Modern, entertaining and dynamic – it is set to attract impressive spectator numbers, as it is expected to be a thrilling show with cycling right in the heart of big cities worldwide. The first three finishers in each discipline are awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals. The winner of each discipline is also entitled to wear the rainbow jersey in events of that discipline, until the following year’s World Championships.
The dates for the first ever 2017 UCI Urban Cycling World Championships have been set between November 8 and 12 and the place will be Chengdu, China.
