The UCI have released the calendar for the 2021 Mercedes-Benz UCI MTB World Cup season. There will only be six rounds for both XCO and DH in 2021.
For the first time in a while there are no visits to new locations, while regular World Cup favourites Mont-Sainte-Anne and Vallnord miss out as venues. Notably Leogang hosts a dual DH and XCO round for the first time. The World Championships take place in Val di Sole, Italy. The Olympics loom large for the cross-country racers with their medal races taking place in Tokyo in the latter part of July.
