The first ever UCI Gravel World Championships will be held this weekend, with the rainbow bands on offer for the first time for racing across on the surface. Now we know who is starting the race, it is time to find out how to watch it.

It might be gravel, something new, but it should be exciting racing, and the elite races will be shown, and you can find out how to watch them wherever you are with our handy guide and with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).

On Saturday, 48 elite women will compete for the first world title in the discipline, before 138 men do the same on Sunday. The women will race an 140km course with 69% gravel and 700 meters of elevation gain, while the men tackle 194km with 800 meters of climbing. That race has 36% unpaved roads, 18% hard gravel, 1% cobbles, 17% hard surface and 27% asphalt.

It is a busy weekend of racing action, with the gravel worlds happening alongside Il Lombardia, Filippo Ganna's tilt at the Hour Record, and Paris-Tours on Sunday, but no matter, because GCN+ is showing it all worldwide.
