TREK UCI Gravel World Series

3RIDES is once again the host of the German qualifying race for the 2024 Gravel World Championship. The race on Sunday, May 12, 2024 is part of the TREK UCI Gravel World Series. Anyone who is interested can come along.

TREK UCI Gravel World Series

The concept of the gravel race series is that riders can earn a place in the annual TREK UCI Gravel World Championships(more info here). In each of the 25 qualifying races held worldwide, the fastest 25% of men and women in each age group are guaranteed a starting place at the UCI Gravel World Championships.

Professional riders can also participate in the events of the series. Any type of bike is permitted, i.e. road bikes, cyclocross bikes, gravel bikes and mountain bikes - but not e-bikes. Important: Prerequisite is a racing license or a signed and stamped sports medical certificate(download here) plus Identity card for identification.

One or two rounds are run.
