The UCI has confirmed that the 2022 Gravel World Championships will be held in the Veneto region of Italy on October 8-9, bringing together riders qualifying through the 12 World Series events across ten nations. The 2023 Gravel World Championships will also be held in Italy with a final location still to be named. 

The organisers of the L'Eroica event in Tuscany were considered the favourites to host the first ever official UCI Gravel World Championships as they celebrate the 25th edition of the L'Eroica. However World Championships are always awarded after a bidding process that includes significant rights fees and the UCI have now selected Veneto in the north-east of Italy.
