The UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships will be held in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Jan. 28-30, 2022.  This is only the second time that the championships have been held in the United States!


Hosted at Centennial Park in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the Worlds is a two-day event featuring six championship races for Elite Men and Women, Under 23 Men and Women, and Junior Men and Women spanning a festive weekend. The World Championships give athletes the opportunities to compete for their country, just like the Olympic Games. 

Cyclo-Cross is a fall and winter cycling sport that has grown in the last decade, especially in the United States. Competitors race on a spectator-friendly course approximately 1.75 miles (3 km), in length that includes short steep hills and obstacles that may require dismounting and running with the bike. Races take place ‘rain or shine', making cyclo-cross riders some of the toughest across disciplines. Click here to find out more about cyclo-cross.
