UCI World Cup in US Canceled




AIGLE, Switzerland (canadiancyclist.com) - Last failed attempt to get a UCI World Cup in the US has fallen through. Angelfire has been reportedly removed from the 2007 schedule permanently and there will be no UCI World Cup in the US. Mont-Sainte Anne is now the only World Cup in North America.

Canadian Cyclist posted: "A UCI spokesperson has said the UCI has "closed the door" on a World Cup in the US in 2007. The original plans for a triple at the end of June at the Angel Fire Resort in December collapsed after organizers withdrew their bid saying sponsorship was not coming in.

The UCI with the assistance of USA cycling then began to explore a replacement venues in US soil. Park City (Utah) was an initial site put forward, but when that failed Lake Placid (NY) was the next site. Now that location too has failed to go forward.

The UCI will now consult with the teams as to the best way to proceed."
