From 22 to 30 September, the 2018 UCI Road World Championships will take place in Innsbruck-Tirol (Austria). On eight days of competition, more than 1,000 athletes will battle it out in Team Time Trial, Individual Time Trial and Road Race events for the right to wear the coveted UCI Rainbow Jersey. The races will start in four regions of Tirol – Ötztal, Hall-Wattens, Alpbachtal Seenland and Kufstein – and lead along a range of different courses before finishing in the centre of Innsbruck. Cycling fans keen to follow the action can book tickets for the finish area now and benefit from exclusive Worlds holiday offers.
Cycling fever throughout Tirol
Visitors to the four start regions which will feature at the 2018 UCI Road World Championships can look forward to world-class action in front of a stunning mountain panorama. The first races of the Worlds will begin in the Ötztal Valley at AREA 47, Austria’s largest outdoor adventure centre. Just as impressive is the setting in Wattens, where the riders will set off from the Swarovski Crystal Worlds on their way towards the finish in front of the Hofburg imperial palace in Innsbruck. Picturesque Rattenberg with its narrow medieval streets will also host the start of races during the 2018 UCI Road World Championships, while the fourth and final start location is the fortress town of Kufstein surrounded by the breathtaking Kaiser Mountains. In short, the whole of Tirol has been seized by cycling fever!
