Minsk 2021 - UEC SUPER CYCLING EURO CHAMPS
The first edition of the UEC Super Cycling European Championships is taking shape. The city of Minsk (Belarus) is planning to host the event in 2021 (from 1st to 15th August).
The UEC Super Cycling European Championships concept is a large scale event that will host over two weeks in the city of Minsk and the Minsk region, the European Championships in six disciplines: Road (Juniors, Under 23 and Elite), MTB (Youth, Juniors, Under 23, Elite and Masters), Track Elite, BMX Racing (Challenge, Juniors, Under 23 and Elite), BMX Freestyle and Gran Fondo.
This event, which will be in the same format every four years, is without doubt a great opportunity for the host city since for two weeks approximately 5,000 athletes from 50 competing countries will take part in the races on the programme which will also have huge TV coverage all over Europe and outside Europe, thanks to an agreement signed between the UEC and Eurovision.
Over the years, the city of Minsk has hosted very prestigious sports events including an edition of the Track World Cycling Championships in 2013, two rounds of the Track Cycling World Cup (2017/2018 and 2019/2020), a Hockey World Championships, an Artistic Ice Skating European Championships (2019) and a Speed Skating Championships (2016) as well as the 2nd edition of the European Games, a multi-sport event which took place in June 2019.
