(UCI Press Release) The opening round of the 2015-2016 UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup went down in history as being the first round of the international 20160427 085359 resizedseries ever to be held outside of Europe. The race course, organisation and overall atmosphere of enthusiasm and fair play all contributed to CrossVegas earning the vote of best event of the 2015-2016 UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup.

 

Brook Watts, head of the CrossVegas Organising Committee received the trophy from UCI Deputy Sports Director and Head of Off-Road Peter Van den Abeele during an organisers’ seminar held at the UCI headquarters in Aigle, Switzerland, on Friday.

 

Organisers of all nine rounds of the 2016-2017 Telenet UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup as well as the next two UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships attended the seminar. Discussions began with a debrief of the last season before turning to the upcoming 2016-2017 season.

 

The 2016-2017 Telenet UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup will comprise nine rounds, up from seven last year. CrossVegas will again kick off the season in Las Vegas on Wednesday September 21st.
