While the unofficial Gravel Worlds has been held annually in Nebraska, USA since 2010, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) today announced its first official Gravel World Championships, where a rainbow jersey —instead of a pirate sword— will be on offer. 

The 2022 and 2023 UCI Gravel World Championships will both take place in Italy. The premiere UCI Gravel World Championships are slated for October 8 and 9, 2022 in the northeastern region of Veneto.
