UCI World Cycling Tour 2013.

After two successful seasons since its launch in 2011, the UCI World Cycling Tour (UWCT) enters 2013 with an exciting calendar, touring all five continents. Besides classic venues such as Italy, Belgium and France, the new world giants of Australia, Brazil and the USA among many other exciting destinations, the series is now ready to welcome its first Asian event. The exotic landscape of Sri Lanka is our first stop next year, with a Road Race and a Time Trial in the surrounding of the country’s former capital, Colombo. The month of April seems to be inviting to warm, coastal destinations. After Sri Lanka, the UWCT has a stop in the glamorous hills of Saint Tropez, France, in Perth, Australia and then in Chania, on the Greek Island of Crete.

In May we move on to the state of New York, in the USA to get the season started in North America. UCI Bike City Copenhagen expects the Scandinavian crowd and other visitors for their Road Race and Time Trial. Belgium also hosts their qualifier event in May.

In June it’s time for Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, to show why they have recently been awarded as host city of the 2014 UWCT Final. Their classic style road race is one of the biggest and most traditional in the series, with the city centre fully closed for cyclists. Then we move north to the rolling mountains of Austria, to St. Polten in the Vienna surroundings.

In July the UWCT takes us to a rehearsal of the most challenging UWCT Final ever. The Qualifier event in Trento, Italy, will feature most of the climbs and landscape of this season’s Final. In August and September, Brazil and Spain close the opportunities for riders to qualify to a legendary Final.

The town of Trento is so proud to be hosting the 2013 Road Masters World Championships (UWCT Final) that it will be hard not to feel already a World Champion once you get there. The rainbow colors will be everywhere and the top of the famous Giro d’ Italia climb, Monte Bondone itself, will be standing like a podium for the ones who reach its top on the road race.
