UCI Gravel World Championship Qualifier Returning to Fayetteville

Registration is open for the 2024 Highlands Gravel Classic to be held on April 27, 2024 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The 2024 Highlands Gravel Classic which will once again be part of the UCI Gravel World Series, and an official qualifying event for the 2024 UCI Gravel World Championships which will be held in Belgium. The Highlands Gravel Classic will be the only qualifier in the U.S. for 2024.

In 2023, the Highlands Gravel Classic was also the only qualifying event in the U.S. and one of 11 globally with the 2023 race hosting riders from 38 states and 8 foreign countries. The 2023 UCI Gravel World Championships had 1,254 gravel racers from around the world with Keagan Swenson of the USA finishing 5th in the elite race.

The top 25% of finishers in 10 men’s and 10 women’s age groups along with an Elite category will qualify for the World Championships that will take place in Belgium on October 5th and 6th of 2024.

“The 2024 Highlands Gravel Classic is moving to late April to take advantage of the milder temperatures of spring in the Ozark Mountains which will create ideal gravel racing conditions in the region. Our gravel courses are over 90% gravel and will feature the Boston Mountains – home to the highest peaks and some of the most rewarding scenery in the Ozarks. We look forward to hosting the only Gravel World Series qualifier in the USA and for riders to take their shot at qualifying for the World Championship race in Belgium”, said Bruce Dunn, race director and CEO of All Sports Productions, the event organizer.

While many elite, world-class gravel racers are expected to participate, the race is open to gravel riders of all levels, with all participants racing the same two courses. Men from 19 to 59 and women from 19 to 49 will compete on a 66-mile course while men 60+ and women 50+ will compete on a 52-mile course.

Pre-event festivities including shakeout rides, participant registration, and more to be hosted in historic Downtown Fayetteville with day of competition beginning from the welcoming community of Goshen, which is just east of Fayetteville.
