The UCI announced it has awarded the 2011 Cyclo-cross World Championships to the town of St. Wendel, Germany. The city previously hosted the 2005 World Championships, won by Hanka Kupfernagel and Sven Nys in the elite races, and Zdenek Stybar in the espoirs category. Held in the snow and ice, the St. Wendel course proved to be a treacherous one that year.

St. Wendel, a small town in the Saarland, has also hosted both cyclo-cross and mountain bike World Cups.
