At the UCI Road World Championships last week in Varese, Italy, the UCI released the 2009 calendar of World Cups and Continental Championships. Missing from the list were two rounds of the downhill and one round of the cross country World Cups, but on Wednesday, those holes were filled.
La Bresse, France, will host the second round of the downhill World Cup on May 9-10. This is a first for La Bresse, which makes its debut on the World Cup calendar. Bromont, Canada, will host a triple UCI World Cup event on August 1-2. In 2008, Bromont returned to the World Cup Circuit after a hiatus of nine years.
The complete, revised 2009 UCI Major Events calendar is below.
