The rumors are true…Schladming is out

It’s been on the rumor mill for a while now that the Schladming round of the downhill and fourcross World Cup was in jeopardy. The UCi today released a statement to this effect:

The International Cycling Union (UCI) is pleased to announce that another venue will replace Schladming. Leogang has agreed to organise the sixth round of the World Cup, a double event featuring the downhill and four-cross disciplines. The change will allow Leogang, which already has an event registered on the UCI international calendar the following weekend (June 26th and 27th), to provide a veritable mountain bike festival for fans of the sport. The UCI is delighted to have found an excellent alternative on the same date as Schladming, which minimises the implications for the riders, teams and media.

We’ll publish more details on the Leogang track as soon as we get them.
