The initial 2018-2019 UCI Cyclocross Race Calendar is out, and it’s a packed schedule yet again, with two American World Cups, and 179 total days of UCI racing. Of course, much can change between now and the start of the season, with missing events being added back to the calendar.

Nittany Lion is back as a UCI race, now that the pre-Interbike weekend is no longer filled with a World Cup, but we don’t see Rochester (yet) on the calendar. Deschutes Brewery’s GO Cross weekend in Roanoke, Virginia is a new addition to the calendar.  The KMC Cross Fest is also missing, but is expected to return as two days of C2 racing this season. The Gran Prix of Gloucester is also missing from this preliminary calendar, but has its dates set for October 13/14, 2018, and is expected to retain UCI status. Charm City is also not on this initial release, but has said it will be on October 6-7.

This year’s December USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships is already proving problematic to European series-focused racers, as the DVV and Superprestige fall on the same weekend as Nationals.

There are nine World Cup stops, with a Switzerland stop and return to Tabor, Czech Republic.

Breakdown by Country:

Twenty different countries will host UCI cyclocross races, according to the schedule released today, as compared to 24 last year.

The U.S.’ UCI calendar predictably contracts with Nationals moving up nearly a month earlier to December. This year, there are only 30 UCI days on tap, while last year there were 42, but we expect that number to increase as the missing events are added back.

Belgium leads with 40 UCI race days, up from 38 last year, while Canada takes a big leap with now 10 UCI race days, after having only 3 last year.

Many countries are one or two races short from their totals last year, while China is noticeably absent after ambitious plans to have four UCI C1 races in 2017. However, the event has been a late addition to UCI calendars in the past.

Of course, as with every year, there can be late additions and scratches, and we’ll update this accordingly.

Here’s a current breakdown by country:
