Etc. (any further 5-year category for which riders have entered)
Age Groups applicable to the TREK UCI Gravel World Series are defined by the rider’s age on December 31st of the year of the qualifier event. Riders who qualify past the World Championships for next year’s World Championships and change age group in the following year will automatically take their qualification to the next age group so don’t need to qualify again in their new age group in the year of the World Championships. As per the regulations applied for the UCI Gravel World Championships, medals and titles will be awarded for men and/or women as soon as 1 rider is registered in the respective 5-year age category.
Qualification for the UCI Gravel World Championships
As per the official qualification system for the 2022 UCI Gravel World Championships, each TREK UCI Gravel World Series event grants qualification rights for the UCI Gravel World Championships for those riders finishing in the first 25% of their age group.
TREK UCI Gravel World Series TREK UCI Gravel World Series
The 25% is calculated based on the number of starters in each age group, and not on the number of riders having finished the race.
In addition, the first three riders of each official age category will qualify directly for the World Championships, independently of the number of starters in that age group. Riders must finish the race to gain qualification.
For all other methods of qualification (wild cards, masters national champions, etc.), please consult the official qualification system for the 2022 UCI Gravel World Championships.
The names of riders having gained qualification through the TREK UCI Gravel World Series will be communicated on the TREK UCI Gravel World Series website and will receive an official email from the UCI inviting them to register for the UCI Gravel World Championships via the dedicated online registration portal.
All riders (whether license holders or not) completing the same distance in a qualifier event are officially considered as participants in the UCI Gravel World Series, i.e. they must be part of the same ranking list, independently of the wave in which they started.
