Originating in the US Midwest some 15 years ago, gravel has grown in popularity and is now booming worldwide. Popular with riders seeking new challenges, it combines elements of road and mountain bike, and takes place mainly on unsealed roads (gravel, forest tracks, farm roads, cobbles, etc). The concept of the new gravel series is based on that of the existing and very successful UCI Gran Fondo World Series where riders can also earn their spot for an annual UCI World Championships. At each round of the new UCI Gravel World Series, the fastest 25% of men and women from each age group will qualify for the UCI Gravel World Championships which will crown the UCI World Champions for each age group. The only difference with the concept for Gran Fondo is that professional riders may also take part in events of the series and qualify for the discipline’s UCI World Championships.

These will be the first UCI World Championships for gravel, a discipline that this year sees the introduction of the first edition of the UCI Gravel World Series.
