CYCLING HOLIDAY IN GLASGOW KICKS OFF IN 2 WEEKS!

A premiership unprecedented in cycling. The World Championships will link cycling across the spectrum in Glasgow, Scotland, in August, and in addition to cycling, there will be a battle for medals and rainbow jerseys in all the remaining disciplines! Cycling day is scheduled from 3 to 13 August.
A large expedition of Czech cyclists will also be presented there. Competing for medals will be road workers, representatives of MTB in cross country and downhill, track runners, representatives in BMX (classic BMX Racing as well as BMX Freestyle in Park and Flatland disciplines), trialling, indoor cycling and, last but not least, para-cyclists. A total of 13 disciplines and in each of them a series of sets of medals. Somewhere in the junior category and U23, elsewhere only the elite.
Races will take place not only in Glasgow, but across Scotland. A total of 190 titles are in play and around 8,000 athletes from 120 countries around the world are expected to participate. In addition to professionals, amateurs, because the gran fondo road race is part of the program. And according to estimates by representatives of the International Cycling Union, over a million visitors could roll through the sports grounds.
All the cycling industries will come together in one place, which is big news for us. It is a logistically, financially and organizationally very demanding event, but I think cycling will bring strong media coverage and popularity,” said ČSC President Petr Marek. “The quotas for both competitors and the accompanying team limit us a little bit, but at the MS we send especially those competitors who have a chance of a good placing and, of course, a medal,” added Marek.
The Czech expedition will certainly have well over 100 people in Scotland. “We do not have the final numbers yet, as registrations are still open for most disciplines, however, we are currently counting on an expedition of 80 athletes and 55 members of the implementation team and official delegation,” the CSC sports coordinator informs.
Championship tickets can already be purchased online, with the option to purchase them individually or for a combination of events. It is even possible to come to some races without paying, for example on a marathon or road. It will only be paid for a shuttle bus from Glasgow, which will take spectators to the start of each race and then transport them back.
Of course there will be a charge for access to the enclosed venues, with tickets to cross-country elite races now costing £30. The start of course will not only be elite categories, but in the days before there will also be junior races, for riders of category U23 and we must not forget e-bikers or short track.
If you’re a downhill fan, know that tickets to Fort William are almost sold out, a two-day pass is priced at £45, a one-day ticket – only for elite category finals is for 30.
