The Valais with the support of Swiss Cycling wants to organize the 2025 MTB World Championships. A dossier has been sent to the International Cycling Union (UCI).
Mountain biking is popular in Switzerland both amateur and professional. Swiss runners have dominated cross-country for years with Nino Schurter in the men’s and Jolanda Neff in the ladies. In this favorable context, if we refer to the success of the World Championships in Lenzerheide in 2018, Swiss Cycling has developed an interesting format for Worlds.
The project plans to organize competitions in the seven disciplines of mountain biking (cross-country, downhill, E-Bike, enduro, marathon, pumptrack and short track) in the space of two weeks and in the same region.
