For the first time ever, Denmark will be the hosting a World Cup race. It is a Women's World Cup on the 30th of July, 2006, in Aarhus, and will be one out of 11 races that will be held in 10 countries all over the world. The race is a 45 kilometre team time trial for six riders, which is a new initiative in terms of UCI World Cups. It's expected that 25 trade and national teams will compete.
The event will be organised by Concept Tryk, which has 12 years of experience organising cycling events in Denmark. Jesper Tikiøb, manager of Concept Tryk, is satisfied at being able to present Denmark's first World Cup: "We have been involved with races for many years, and we always find it exciting with a new challenge," he said. "This will absolutely develop our professional competence as race organizers. Now, we have to live up to not only our own, but also the expectations of UCI. For our business, this is a major progress."
