UCI Mountain Bike World Cup 2023 – MONT-SAINTE-ANNE
October 6 @ 3:30 pm - October 7 @ 3:00 pm
Mont-Sainte-Anne (MSA) is the venue with the longest Mountain Bike World Cup history. Since 1998, the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup has been a must-attend event in Canada, welcoming the cream of the international crop to crown the ultimate Downhill and Cross-country champions in a festive gathering full of action and activity.
In October 2023, Mont-Sainte-Anne will host its 28th UCI Mountain Bike World Cup and celebrate its 31st year of UCI events. Year after year, it is with the same enthusiasm that the organisers, about five hundred volunteers, numerous trusted partners and tens of thousands of visitors warmly welcome the UCI World Cup athletes and their teams.
The Downhill and Cross-country tracks are amongst mountain bike racing’s most revered monuments and have played host to some of its biggest moments over the years. As bike technology and rider skill levels continue to progress there remain few tests tougher than found in MSA.
Located 45 minutes from downtown Quebec City and three and a half hours from Montreal, Mont-Sainte-Anne is recognised worldwide as a mountain biking destination, both for its downhill and cross-country infrastructures. With 40km of downhill and free-ride trails and 125 km of forest trails, downhill and cross-country lovers will find Mont-Sainte-Anne to be a challenge!
Overlooking the majestic Saint-Lawrence River, Mont-Sainte-Anne is also a splendid playground for all outdoor sports fans, in both summer and winter.
UCI Downhill World Cup
The Downhill event is without a doubt the most challenging and spectacular of the Mountain Bike World Cup competitions.
This event is an individual time-trial race in which racers attempt to achieve the fastest time as they tackle the legendary Mont-Sainte-Anne downhill trail. Recognised as one of the most demanding runs on the World Cup circuit, the course features a succession of fast sections and technical passages featuring rock gardens, jumps, roots, bumps and other natural obstacles designed to spice up the ride. With its guaranteed thrills, this is a show you won’t want to miss!
