As well as the changes to the track regulations, the UCI also announced a number of World Championship hosts with the 2018 and 2020 Junior Worlds to be held at the UCI headquarters in Aigle and the 2020 Worlds going to Berlin. The 2019 Junior Worlds and 2018 and 2019 Worlds have still to be awarded.

UCI President Brian Cookson said “We are delighted to be able to reveal the names of so many new hosts from such a wide range of countries around the world and we look forward to working closely with the successful cities and regions in the coming months and years as we build towards each of these UCI World Championships.

“We were especially impressed by the strength of interest in hosting our flagship events, as demonstrated by the sheer number and calibre of the bids we received. The UCI is committed to expanding the reach of cycling worldwide and ensuring the sport continues to grow in both established and emerging markets.”

The decision to base the Junior Worlds at Aigle every other year “as part of the UCI’s ongoing strategy to help nurture and grow track cycling for young athletes by ensuring competing nations are fully supported through the state-of-the-art resources and facilities at the UCI’s Home of Cycling”.
