Dublin added to Cyclocross World Cup schedule as London misses out

This winters Cyclocross World Cup will not as had been rumored previously be visiting the capital of the United Kingdom. This of course means World Champion Tom Pidcock will miss out on racing in front of home crowds.

Instead the World Cup will be making the trip over the Irish Sea to Dublin on the 11th of December. The CEO of Flanders Classics, former Belgian basketball player Tomas Van Den Spiegel was full of excitement "We are going to race in a real Irish environment. That will give the round in Dublin its own identity, which we have also seen in Val di Sole and Flamanville.”

2 further changes have also been made to the World Cup calendar, the Rucphen and Dendermonde crosses have been replaced with ones in Maasmechelen and Gavere respectively.

In total 14 races in 8 countries have been scheduled. Starting in Waterloo, USA and finishing of in Besancon, France as Eli Iserbyt looks to retain the title formerly won by the likes of Mathieu van der Poel (2018), Wout van Aert (2016, 2017, 2021) and Zdenek Stybar (2010).
