The UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships are the world championships for road cycling where athletes with a physical disability compete. The event is organised by the sport’s global governing body, Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI).
The Championships were previously administered by the International Paralympic Committee. The UCI and the IPC organised the 2006 IPC Cycling World Championships, combined track and road event. As well as this, the 1994, 1998, 2002, and 2007 IPC World Championships combined track and road events. As with World Championships in other cycling disciplines, the winner is awarded a gold medal and the iconic rainbow jersey. World champions can wear their rainbow jersey until the following year’s championship.
In 2023, the UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships will be held in Glasgow, Scotland as part of the wider UCI Cycling World Championships event where multiple cycling disciplines will hold their world championships in and around the city from 3-13 August 2023.
The 2022 UCI Track World Championships take place from Wednesday, 12 October through to Sunday, 16 October.
This year, the action will take place in France at the Vélodrome National de Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, 20km to the west of Paris. This will will also be the venue for the track cycling at the 2024 Olympic Games.

As usual, there are plenty of options to watch the action live globally. You can also watch on-demand, if the late-afternoon and evening coverage in Paris doesn’t line up with your schedule elsewhere in the world.
In addition, there are options to use a VPN to stream from a country with free terrestrial coverage, although most VPNs with decent geographic coverage and streaming speeds will require a subscription. In France, there’s live coverage on France 3.
