Fayetteville To Host 2021 UCI World Cup

The city of Fayetteville has been named a Bike City by the Union Cycliste Internationale, the world cycling organization, and chosen to host a World Cup cyclocross competition in 2021.

The 3rd Annual FayetteCross — now a first-time World Cup event — is set for Oct. 13, 2021, at Fayetteville’s new 248-acre Centennial Park.

Fayetteville’s annual cyclocross competition is now part of the Union Cycliste Internationale’s 2021-22 World Cup tour.

Centennial Park, which is under development at Millsap Mountain, has a world-class cyclocross course featuring daredevil chutes and lung-busting climbs to test racers, and easy access for spectators even in wooded areas along the course.

As the first city in the U.S. to receive the Bike City designation, Fayetteville joins other pro-cycling destinations like Copenhagen and Paris. Fayetteville also hosts the Joe Martin Stage Race, the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championship on Jan. 29-30, 2022 and other pro cycling events.
