2002 Mountain Bike World Cup
We have the unofficial 2002 schedule for the World Cup. Please note that it will not become official until the UCI ratifies it in October.
|May 18-19||Madrid, Spain||Cross-country|
|May 25-26||Houffalize, Belgium||Cross-country|
|June 1-2||Leysin, Switzerland||Cross-country, Downhill, Dual|
|June 8-9||Maribor, Slovenia||Downhill|
|June 29-30||Mont Ste Anne, Canada||Cross-country, Downhill, Dual|
|July 6-7||Grouse Mtn, Canada||Cross-country, Downhill, Dual|
|July 13-14||Arai, Japan||Downhill|
|August 25 - September 1||Kaprun, Austria||World Championships|
|September 7-8||Les Gets, France||World Cup Final (Triple)|
This is likely the last time that Canada will get two World Cups in the shortened schedule. The UCI is pushing hard to have a U.S. stop on the schedule and that will probably happen by 2003. You will also notice that the world championships have moved up to August. According to our information, the intention of the UCI is to keep the UCI at this time during the season (except in Olympic years). Lugano, Switzerland has the 2003 Worlds, and the 2004 Worlds are still to be awarded.
Worlds Follow Up
Our editor has arrived back in Canada after a full day of fighting with the 'new' air travel. We will be attending the Canadian trade show tomorrow, and then, starting tomorrow, we will be putting up lots more worlds photos and some more Worlds stories.
