The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and MyWhoosh have announced that the fourth edition of the UCI Cycling Esports World Championships, to be held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, will take place in October 2024.
For the first time, all participants qualified for the final will compete on site, with the event organizer arranging for the top 20 female and male athletes from the qualifying rounds to travel to Abu Dhabi.
Earlier this year, the UCI announced that MyWhoosh would be the exclusive platform and organiser of the UCI Cycling Esports World Championships for the next three years (2024-2026). By providing athletes, fans and enthusiasts with an immersive experience that combines the excitement of esports with the spirit of cycling, MyWhoosh will help develop this exciting and quickly growing discipline.
The 2024 UCI Cycling Esports World Championships will include qualifying rounds to decide the finalists competing in Abu Dhabi. More detailed information about the event, including location and exact dates, qualification pathways and details on the format, will be communicated at the beginning of next year.
In addition to the UCI Cycling Esports World Championships, Abu Dhabi will host the 2024 UCI Urban Cycling World Championships, the 2028 UCI Road World Championships, the 2028 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships and the 2029 UCI Track World Championships, confirming its ambitions to becoming a hub for top-class cycling events.
