Get ready for the 2023 UCI MTB Eliminator World Cup!
Less than two months before we’re World Cup racing again: who else gets goose-bumps thinking about it!? We’re happy to present you the final 2023 UCI MTB Eliminator World Cup calendar.
On May 21, the eliminator stars will be gathering in Sakarya, Türkiye for the opening round of the 2023 UCI MTB Eliminator World Cup. The impressive Ayçiçek Vadisi Bisiklet Adası bike stadium will be just the perfect place to start our 2023 racing season!
Two weeks later, we’ll be setting up our race track in the historic center of Leuven, Belgium (June 4). Leuven was the stage setting of the spectacular 2020 UCI MTB Eliminator World Championships, and will once again offer action-packed street racing.
Round 3 brings us back to Aalen, Germany – home of 2022 overall UCI MTB Eliminator World Cup winner Simon Gegenheimer. No doubt, thousands of enthusiastic fans will come together in the cosy streets of Aalen again on July 15, cheering for ‘Mustache Man’ and his colleagues!
Next up is Oudenaarde, Belgium. This spring week-end, the city will be hosting the finish of the 2023 Tour of Flanders – a Monument in road cycling. But Oudenaarde has so much more to offer, as we will be proving on August 13, racing on the historic market square.
The exact date of the penultimate round in Paris, France is still to be confirmed. On either Saturday September 16 or Sunday September 17, we’ll be eliminator racing on an iconic location in the heart of The City of Love. Stay tuned for the full Paris announcement later this year!
After organising the 2022 UCI MTB Eliminator World Championships, Barcelona, Spain returns as the ‘Grande Finale’ of the 2023 UCI World Cup on September 30. Who will be conquering the overall win in the shadows of the impressive Palau Nacional on Montjuic hill?
