Can I enter a World Cup or Championships privately, through the UCI or race organiser? No. Only your national cycling federation can enter you in these events. Please fill out the relevant on-line form above for your discipline.
Will I be notified when my entry is confirmed? As long as you fill out the on-line form and you have the required UCI points you will be entered. Entries do not open with the UCI until 20 days prior to the event so we cannot provide proof of entry before this time. If you do not have the required UCI points and are seeking a Wild Card entry, fill out the form and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
What do I wear at a World Cup race? You may wear your own racing kit. You are NOT permitted to wear the National Team kit unless you are a Wild Card entry. The UCI mandate that all Wild Card entries must wear their National Team kit.
Why am I receiving an email from MTBA asking for my address at the event? The UCI system requires a full and correct address for each rider who is being registered for World Cup and Championship events. This includes the Hotel name, street address and town. If the address is not correctly written, the system will not accept the entry.
Can I race World Cups on an MTBA domestic licence? No. You must upgrade your domestic licence to a full Cycling Australia membership. You will then be required to purchase an International Licence from Cycling Australia. If you are racing overseas, you must also purchase insurance for the period you will be racing. You can source other insurance but you must provide PROOF that it will cover you for a UCI event. Many policies will not cover this.
