UEC ROAD CHAMPIONSHIPS
TRENTO SEPTEMBER 8th – 12th, 2021
Five days, thirteen titles up for grabs among 800 athletes, representing 50 Countries. On September 2021, the lights of top-end cycling will be pointed on Trentino and on the city of Trento, where the new Road Continental Champions will be crowned.
A major fixture in the cycling season, winking particularly at those riders whose characteristics don’t match the demands of the Olympic Games in Tokyo. If the Olympics will be a climbers’ business, Trentino will be calling for strong allrounders with a fast finish: a profile that fits the reigning European Champion, Giacomo Nizzolo, but also many other major names in cycling, who will be adding the finish in Piazza Duomo to their list of big goals.
Unparalleled factory of cycling talent in Italy, Trentino and Trento are ready for a new chapter of their long love story with the two-wheels sport.
The former two-time World champion, now president of the professional cyclists association, was positively impressed by the routes of the Road European Championships: “The finish in the heart of Trento is really charming”
UEC and Eurovision conducted an inspection on the next Road European Championships paths (8-12 September) to evaluate advanced technology solutions for TV broadcasting
The Italian rider did an in-depth recon on the "Trentino 2021" road race, where he'll defend his crown: "I look forward to a sparkling race, this won't be just sprinters' business"
