It has yet to be confirmed but it looks likely that the Cyclocross World Cup will expand from six to nine rounds, with the opening races taking place in September in Las Vegas and Montreal.
UCI coordinator Peter Vandenabeele has been unable to confirm the news as not all deals have been completed. However, he did say, “I can confirm that there will be more World Cups than in the current season and that a move to America will be made. Also new is that all World Cup races will take place on Sunday, with the exception of Milton Keynes. For them it was not a priority.”
“Koksijde wanted to move to Sunday. With Francorchamps on Sunday, they (Koksijde) found that this year they received less media attention, and we are considering their demand because it is our duty to give the World Cups priority. ”
The full calendar for next season will be released on Friday, January 30th, the eve of the World Championships in Tabor.
