The World University Cycling Championship is just around the corner and San Carlos, in Costa Rica, will host the sporting activities, scheduled to take place from May 20 to June 2.

This is the ninth edition of this universal competition, which will award 5 categories for both genders. The athletes come from the 5 continents and will represent the University Sports Federations of the world.

Based on previous events, the presence of 40 countries and 200 cyclists is expected. The routes will be centered in San Carlos. One stage will pass through the lower part of Rio Cuarto and Sarapiqui Center by the north coast route #04.

The organizers will take extreme security measures given the international importance of the event and the fact that minors will be among the participants. The total cost is around ₡120 million, of which ICODER will invest about ₡40 million.

This championship is sponsored by the World University Sports Federation. FISU is the governing body of university sports worldwide and Costa Rica is a member country through FEDU.

Costa Rica has participated in similar events in Poland 2014, in the Philippines 2016, and in 2018 in Portugal. For this competition it is guaranteed that the best high performance university athletes in the country will participate for Costa Rica.

This championship has been held previously in all parts of the world except America, being the first time in this continent and the first time that Costa Rica organizes a world event at the university level.

TEC San Carlos, in Santa Clara, will be the venue that will host the athletes and the organization of this great event.
