Regarding road cycling, the UCI has decided to create a UCI World Champion title in the road race and individual time trial in the Women Under 23 category. This new title will be introduced at the 2022 edition of the UCI Road World Championships, which will take place in Wollongong (Australia).

In an update on the international health situation, UCI Medical Director, Professor Xavier Bigard, noted that vaccination coverage within the teams (riders and staff) is close to 100% (97%). The updated health protocol for road cycling events in 2022, currently in force, was published on 21 January.

UCI President David Lappartient said “With the award of a Women Under 23 UCI World Champion title in the road race and individual time trial at the next UCI Road World Championships, I am delighted that we have taken another step towards parity between men and women in our sport.

“This innovation, like the progress made in protecting the integrity of cycling and its players, makes our sport more inclusive, and we will continue our work in this respect in the coming years.”
