The 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships are fast approaching as the cycling world descends on Glasgow and Scotland, with the championships kicking off in just three weeks. 

A festival of cycling will see over 8000 athletes compete as 13 World Championships take place in a never seen before combined event held over 11 days from August 3rd to 13th.  

The 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships in Glasgow and across Scotland is a true world first. This is the inaugural edition, and will be followed by subsequent events every four years, in the year preceding the Summer Olympic Games.

The Cycling Ireland High Performance Unit are excited for the championships and hope that some of Ireland's top riders across a variety of disciplines can shine on the world stage. 

Iain Dyer, Cycling Ireland High Performance Director, said: 

“Clearly the HPU understood a long way out this would be a huge commitment in all strands of our work. The logistics, selections, entries, accreditations and costs that are normally spread throughout the year into individual disciplines have required a monumental effort from our small team to undertake in one go."
"We were also pleased to collaborate with the BMX and Off-road Commission regarding their selections and logistics as well. I am very proud to say that we’re pretty much ready to go now and are looking forward to getting to Glasgow.”

Cycling Ireland will announce the squads selected to represent Ireland at the championships in due course, including road, track, para-cycling, BMX and off-road.
