UCI Cross-Country World Championships

It’s an Olympian feat of skill and endurance as athletes tackle the technical uphill and downhill sections of this Olympic-grade course. Riders race around a loop 5 to 7 times, with the women aiming for a time of around 1 hour and 30 minutes and men shooting for closer to 1:45.
