2022 UCI MTB World Championships – Les Gets, France

The 2022 UCI MTB World Championships is taking place in Les Gets, France this weekend. Expect punchy climbs & rocky technical descents! The course at Les Gets always puts on a show and with the weather expected to be rainy all weekend, this year should be no different!

The Course

Les Gets is known for its rock gardens, swooping berms and technical features and this year is set to be epic! We visited the course a couple of weeks ago and saw some fresh dug sections as well as some log drops, rocky sections and an under-over bridge that should make for great viewing. With a distance of 3.39km and an elevation gain of 140m per lap, we expect to see some close racing across all categories.
