Following rumours in January that round one of the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup series would be moved to the U.S. for the 2007/08 season, SportWereld has reported that the city of Providence, Rhode Island will indeed host the first World Cup event in American history on October 6.

The Saturday race will be followed by another event on the Sunday so that "riders can earn a little more, to compensate for their expensive trip," explained UCI Cyclo-cross co-ordinator Peter Van Den Abeele.

The second World Cup event on October 21 we be held in Kalmthout, Belgium, the more traditional home of cyclo-cross.
