FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. (Nov. 17, 2021) – Tickets are now on sale for the historic 2022 Walmart UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships that will be held in Fayetteville January 28-30 – only the second time on U.S. soil in the race’s 72-year history.
“We are so excited to have been chosen as the race site and we will be treating spectators to a festival-type experience to accompany this exciting sporting event,” said Molly Rawn, CEO of Experience Fayetteville. “Guests will be able to enjoy great food and music while they watch these elite athletes battle it out on the one-of-a-kind course we’ve built at Centennial Park.”
Cyclo-cross is the fastest growing type of cycling across the globe. It is often described as mountain biking with a road bike on a criterium style course that’s twisty, hilly, wet, muddy and full of obstacles that require riders to dismount and carry their bikes at times.
Some 300 cyclists representing 25 nations will be competing for UCI World Championship titles in Men and Women Elite, Men and Women Under 23, Men and Women Juniors, and Team Relay events – with the latter being included for the first time at a cyclo-cross championship.
