Just 10 days after the last round of the 2020-2021 cyclocross World Cup finished in Overijse, Belgium, the UCI announced the 2021-2022 schedule on Thursday. It’s going to be a big season for the U.S.A., with the nation hosting the first three rounds and the World Championships.
2021-2022 may be the most important year ever for the US in international cyclocross. Three world cups and world championships on home soil.

The 2020-2021 season was supposed to have 14 rounds, with the first two races in Waterloo, Wis., and Dublin, Ireland. Alas, the COVID-19 pandemic ended up cancelling nine rounds, leaving five races that led to Lucinda Brand and Wout Van Aert earning the titles.
