Lotte Kopecky brings down the curtain on the 2023 Cycling Super World Championships with a solo victory in the women’s road race The 2023 UCI World Championships was the first edition of the ‘Super Worlds’, the bringing together almost all of the cycling disciplines except for cyclocross and gravel. Over the course of 10 days in Glasgow and across Scotland, over 200 rainbow jerseys were awarded.
This year, the UCI Road World Championships was six weeks earlier than usual, in close proximity to the Tour de France and Tour de France Femmes. As such, the elite men’s road race , usually the closing event, took place on the first weekend while the elite women’s road race concluded the unified Worlds.
Typically held in the late winter, the UCI Track World Championships were shifted to late summer – a timing adjustment that will help with preparation for the Paris Olympic Games in 2024.
A unified World Championships will be held every four years to coincide with the Summer Olympic Games cycle. In 2027, the next combined championships will be held in Haute Savoie, France.
