A CX World Cup with continuity and novelties

Less than a year ago, just after Van der Poel and Van Aert's grueling duel at the Hoogerheide World Cup, the UCI published the 2023-24 cyclocross calendar.

As it happened last year, Waterloo (United States) will once again be the starting point, although this time it is the only race to be held on American territory. The Fayeteville race, which was on its way to becoming a contemporary classic after being present in the international calendar for the last three years, including the World Championship, is therefore dropped.

After the incursion outside Europe, the riders will return to the Old Continent. They will do so in Belgium, the country with the most tradition and the most fans of the mud discipline, which will host 6 of the 14 events of the season.

Flamanville (France) returns after a year's absence, although the French public will also be able to enjoy the Troyes event. This French town, where the last two rounds of the Coupe de France 2022-23 were held, will make its debut in the World Cup.

The itinerary will pass for the second year in Dublin (Ireland). The capital of the Emerald Isle repeats after organizing its first race last year. Another repeat is Val di Sole (Italy), which will once again swap the mud for the snow of the Alps. And of course, the Netherlands - another of the fathers of CX and a place that always gathers many fans - will have two races.

In the end, neither London nor New York will host a race in 2023-24, despite rumors that both cities could be part of the calendar.

On the other hand, some venues present in the last edition will not be present in the next one. This is the case of Tabor (Czech Republic), which will host the World Cup, and Beekse Bergen (Netherlands), Overijse (Belgium), Zonhoven (Belgium) and Besançon (France).

The UCI confirms the success of Benidorm and gives us another date with the best in the world

Benidorm witnessed a great cyclocross race last season and the UCI realized that Benidorm had more than met the demands of hosting a World Cup event. With 13,000 spectators in attendance and a good organization, the event was a success.

In the same line thinks the UCI, which has decided to return to Alicante to dispute another round of the competition. In addition, it will take place on the same dates (January 21st) and will once again be the penultimate race.
