The World Championships in Les Gets

Eighteen years after the 2004 UCI MTB World Championships, Les Gets, in co-organisation with the French Cycling Federation, hosted the UCI MTB World Championships from 24 to 28 August 2022.
Come and see the results and the results of the event.


The qualifications started strongly on Friday afternoon. With the French in good shape, Benoit Coualnge and Amaury Pierron took the lead in the qualifications. For the women, Myriam Nicole takes a comfortable first place.
Just like the qualifications, the following day, the final offered a historic show. A podium kept for Myriam Nicole, with the 3rd place of this final. For the men, an exclusively French final podium, a historic triple.

It was under the rain that the short track cross-country races took place. This one gave a beautiful race full of bounce and fall… Pauline Ferrand Prevot did not give in and maintained her first place throughout the race to take the gold. For the men, our French athletes abstained from the race in order to save themselves for Sunday’s Olympic cross-country race, so it was the Australian Samuel Gaze who won.
