Gravel World Series: A Benchmark Competition

Gravel riding has really taken off in recent years, and since 2022, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has launched the Trek UCI Gravel World Series. This series brings together the best gravel specialists across 17 stages in 14 different countries, all qualifying for the world championships in Italy in October 2024.

In France, Wish One has been chosen to organize the only French stage. Meet us in Millau on June 16th, 2024, for an authentic gravel experience! The day before, on June 15th, 2024, Open, Cadet, and Junior races will take place on the UCI courses, providing an exciting atmosphere for all enthusiasts.

A Course to Discover

The start will be in Millau, with a 145 km course that promises to be varied and challenging. You’ll traverse rustic roads, rolling paths, single tracks, wooded trails, and forest paths. The landscapes of the Grands Causses will offer a beautiful variety, but you’ll also have to climb some significant hills before reaching the finish line under the Millau Viaduct. Prepare for a technical and physical challenge to hope to qualify for the world championships.
