Richmond VA selected to host international cycling event

imageRichmond , Virginia has been chosen as the host city for the international championship for bicycle road racing in 2015 .

The sport’s governing body, Union Cycliste Internationale, announced Richmond’s winning bid for 2015 Road World Championships on Wednesday at a meeting in Copenhagen.

Virginia’s capital city had competed with Oman to be the host, but the Middle Eastern country withdrew its bid before the winner was announced.

The 2015 championships, which will take place Sept. 19-27 2015, will include a dozen races in categories such as Elite Men and Women, Under 23 Men, and Junior Men and Women.

About 1,000 cyclists from 70 countries are expected to compete in the race series.

 

The UCI President, Mr. Pat McQuaid, welcomed the decision  which is part of the globalization process in cycling and which will allow the American continent, where our sport is enjoying an impressive development, to once again host the most important event of the UCI calendar.

The UCI Road World Championships had been held previously in the United States in 1986 in Colorado Springs

Richmond-based Chmura Economics & Analytics conducted a study that estimated the event would generate more than $135 million for the Virginia economy and would attract nearly 500,000 spectators.

The World Road Championships were last held in America in 1986 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
