Why host a UCI event? 

 

Cycling is unique in sport. It not only offers competition but it is also a means of transport. This responds to many modern concerns: it is eco-friendly and good for health. Cycling can also showcase your region and boost your local economy. 

 

 

A. The advantages of hosting a UCI Event

 

Hosting a UCI event will help a city to achieve economic, touristic and social objectives.

According to UCI experience, the most efficient strategy is to host several events over 3-4 years to create a link between cycling and the city.
