2022 will be Maasmechelen’s first time hosting a UCI Cyclocross World Cup. UCI announced the change at the start of the season that Maasmechelen (Belgium) will be replacing Rucphen (The Netherlands).
Unfortunately Lucinda Brand (Baloise Trek Lions) will not be able to race due to her broken hand.

However, with one competitor down and recovering, a new challenger arises. Marianne Vos (Team Jumbo-Visma) will be attending her first UCI Cyclocross World Cup this season. Will Fem van Empel (Pauwels Sauzen – Bingoal) be able to maintain her winning streak?
Only one American will be attending the race.
- Clara Honsinger (Ef Education – Tibco – Svb)
Two Canadians will be attending the race.

Lars van der Haar (Baloise Trek Lions) gave Eli Iserbyt (Pauwels Sauzen – Bingoal) quite the challenge in Tabor, keeping Iserbyt on his toes. Will Van der Haar be able to overtake Iserbyt and be Maasmechelen’s first UCI Cyclocross World Cup winner? Or will Iserbyt continue his reign of domination and take that title for himself?
