UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup Dublin Spectator Guide

The Cyclo-cross world descends on Dublin this week as the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup takes centre stage at the Sport Ireland Campus on Sunday, November 26th.

After a momentous first-ever staging of the Cyclo-cross World Cup in Ireland, the competition is back once again in 2023 as the capital hosts round five of this year's World Cup.

And with a full weekend of racing, a newly-improved event and course layout and an Ireland team of 17 riders set to feature, this weekend has everything for the whole family to enjoy the discipline of Cyclo-cross. 

The fast-and-furious discipline will see riders take on several laps of a tough 3km long-circuit - featuring obstacles such as muddy hills and descents, technical turns, sand pits, steps, and barriers that often see riders carry their bike on their shoulders while racing.
