UCI Granfondo World Series Removes Recall as Participation Grows

The concept of recall was applied in previous editions of the World Series, inviting the next best ranked riders who missed the 25% cut-off to replace those who did not take up their qualification spots 

With the objective to ensure that athlete safety and performance remain a top priority at the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships, the UCI has confirmed that qualification for the World Championships will be limited to the first 25% of riders in each age group, as per the UCI regulations, and will not include additional recall opportunities.

The concept of recall was applied in previous editions of the World Series, inviting the next best ranked riders who missed the 25% cut-off to replace those who did not take up their qualification spots. With the growing popularity and expansion of the UCI Gran Fondo World Series, and the resulting increase in athletes qualifying for the World Championships, this additional qualification opportunity will no longer be offered to ensure a more efficient control of the size and safety of the event.

Last year's UCI Granfondo World Series in Albi, France attracted nearly 4,000 cyclists from around the world, a big increase in growth, especially from the North America and the United Kingdom.

Invites for the first 2018 Qualifiers Sent

All qualified riders from Amy's Gran Fondo, Bike Challenge, Società Ciclistica Alfredo Binda ASD and Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge have received their official UCI invitations in the mail today with their personal link to register for the 2018 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in Varese, Italy.
