News: Worlds Coming to Ipswich

The dates for the 2021 and 2022 editions of the UCI Masters Cyclo-Cross World Championships, which will be held in East Suffolk, have been announced.

Last month, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) announced that the 2021 and 2022 events will be held at Trinity Park in East Suffolk. Ahead of this year’s World Championships in Belgium, which begin on 29 November, 2021 and 2022 World Championship organiser Steve Grimwood, together with partners East Suffolk Council and the Eastern Cyclo-Cross Association have today announced the 2021 and 2022 events will take place on 5 and 6 December 2021 and 4and 5 December 2022.

Suffolk has a strong track record of delivering major cyclo-cross events, including three national championships, an edition of the European Championships and numerous events registered on the UCI International Cyclo-Cross calendar. Most recently, the venue played host to round five of the 2018/19 HSBC UK Cyclo-Cross National Trophy Series.

Organiser Steve Grimwood said: “We are proud to be working with the UCI, British Cycling and East Suffolk Council in bringing world championship cycling to our region. Cyclo-Cross is one of the fastest growing types of cycle racing and offers a fantastic spectator sport which is open and accessible to people of all abilities and ages. We look forward to putting together a programme of events for the whole family to enjoy, and to welcoming visitors from all over the world to East Suffolk to participate in the event.”

Cyclo-cross races take place off-road, with the Masters World Championships open to riders aged 35 and over who hold a UCI masters licence. The championships encourage participation from all ages, with categories going up to 75 years old and over. It is expected that various other junior and senior races will be incorporated into the 2021 and 2022 event schedule.
