Age Group Participation
Qualify for the
UCI Gravel World Championships
Each UCI Gravel World Series event grants qualification rights for the UCI Gravel World Championships.
Based on the results of each race, the first 25% of athletes in each age group will be qualified for the UCI Gravel World Championships. The 25% is calculated based on the number of starters in each age group, and not on the number of riders having finished the race
In addition, the first three riders of each official age category will qualify for the World Championships, independently of the number of starters in that age group. Riders must finish the race to gain a qualification for the world championships.
You do not need a UCI race license to qualify.
Men in the age groups between 19-59 years and women in the age groups between 19-49 years have to race the 155 km. route to qualify for the UCI Gravel World Championship.
Men in the age groups 60+ and women in the age groups 50+ have to race the 110 km. route to qualify for the UCI Gravel World Championship.
