Reform of Track Cycling
At its last meeting in Harrogate, Great Britain, the UCI Management Committee endorsed the progress made in the new organisation of track cycling.The reform of track cycling is structured around the transformation of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup into the UCI Nations’ Cup, the shift of the UCI Track Cycling World Championships to (northern hemisphere) autumn and the creation of a new and innovative commercial circuit, formatted for television and to conquer new audiences.The UCI Nations Cup will comprise three rounds, each organised in a different region of the world: one in America, one in Europe or Africa, and one in Asia or Oceania. These rounds will take place from 2021 – as part of the 2020-2021 season – before the discipline’s UCI World Championships. They will comprise three days of competition, broadcast live. The sporting programme common to each of the three rounds will be made up of the following specialities for men and women: team pursuit, team sprint, individual pursuit, individual sprint, keirin, kilometre (men) / 500m (women), Madison and Omnium. Other events may feature on the programme.As for the new commercial circuit, this will concentrate on short events, to make it more accessible and attractive to the largest possible audience. It will take place in the period following the UCI Track Cycling World Championships. Its first edition will mark the beginning of the 2021-2022 season. The events featured will be the following, for men and women: individual sprint, keirin, elimination race and Scratch. The format of the events will be adapted to become shorter and more dynamic. It is at the end of the preceding UCI World Championships, that the riders to participate at all rounds of the circuit will be selected: the Worlds will identify the 18 best sprinters and the 18 best riders of bunched events for both genders. If the riders feature in several rankings, the vacant places may be awarded through wildcards.For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
