UCI GRAVEL WORLD SERIES
The Trek UCI Gravel World Series is a series of UCI-sanctioned races held all over the world. Some 15-20 qualifier events will qualify the top 25% in each age group to the UCI Gravel World Championships where the champions are awarded with the coveted UCI rainbow jersey.
The Trek UCI Gravel World Series concept is focusing on both very competitive riders from the Pro Elite rider level to older riders who still want to compete at a high level at a later age, but also to fun riders who like to keep fit and finish the event.
As part of the UCI’s Gravel World Series, The Gralloch is a qualification event for the Gravel World Championships which will be held in Italy at the the start of October 2023.
Like the Worlds, events in the Series are raced in the UCI’s Masters Age Groups.
