Hosted at Centennial Park in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the 2022 Walmart UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships is a two-day event featuring six championship races for Elite Men and Women, Under 23 Men, and Women, and Junior Men and Women spanning a festive weekend. The World Championships give athletes the opportunities to compete for their country, just like the Olympic Games.
Cyclo-Cross is a fall and winter cycling sport that has grown in the last decade, especially in the United States. Competitors race on a spectator-friendly course approximately 1.75 miles (3 km), in length that includes short steep hills and obstacles that may require dismounting and running with the bike. Races take place rain or shine making cyclo-cross riders some of the toughest across disciplines. We recommend bringing a cowbell and strong lungs for shouting as this is one of the premier cycling spectator experiences in the world. Click here to find out more about cyclo-cross.
The World Championship weekend will be part of a multi-day festival for both new fans and die-hard cyclo-cross spectators. The race will be the pinnacle of a weekend filled with activities and events that showcase all that Northwest Arkansas has to offer.
