The full details of the Wollongong Road World Championships 2022 are set to be announced on March 31, with information like race distances and the number of times riders will take on the already announced key circuits set to be finalised now that the UCI technical delegation has had the opportunity to view the courses and facilities.

Usually the full details of the World Championship courses would have long been known by this point, but announcing a year ahead wasn’t an option given Australia’s borders were shut amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the UCI was unable to conduct site visits. Now, however, with the international border re-opening the sport governing body has this week been able to make its first visit in two years, with members of the delegation spending a number of days viewing the courses and facilities and confirming details with the organising committee for Wollongong Worlds, which will take place from September 18 to 25.
