In just four days, the Glasgow 2023 Unified Cycling World Championship begins in Scotland, where the rainbow jerseys of almost all modalities will be disputed under the protection of the UCI. Within this we share everything you need to know about road and track specialties.

Between August 3 and 13, Glasgow will be the nerve center of the first UCI mega event in which it is intended to create a kind of cycling Olympic Games, by grouping practically all the modalities that depend on this international federation. Only some, like gravel and, obviously, cyclocross, are left out of this great event that the UCI intends to repeat every 4 years.

The next one is already based for 2027 in the French region of Haute-Savoie while, in the years that remain until then, the World Cups of the different disciplines will once again be played in the usual way and dates.

In the particular case of the road cycling events, the elite road events will be divided between the two weekends covered by the event, while the rest of the week will be divided into the different time trial categories.

For its part, track cycling, which will take place at the spectacular Sir Chris Hoy velodrome in Glasgow, will cover practically the entire period of the World Cup, taking place in the different events between August 3 and 9, with the striking novelty of that the para-cycling events on the track are integrated into the same program.
