This is it then, the big one – Laurie Greenland takes us down one dry and dusty DH track for the 2022 MTB World Champs in Les Gets, France. If you’re new to cycling, then it may at first seem odd that you can win a world championship in one race, but, well, you can, and when you do, you get to put the rainbow stripes on the rest of your jerseys for life!

This will be the second time that Les Gets has hosted the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, with that appearance coming back in 2004. Back then the French location was a regular fixture on the UCI mountain bike racing calendar. Les Gets disappeared from the UCI calendar after the 2004 Worlds but regained its spot in 2019 when it became a World Cup location. Racing at the World Cup in Les Gets took place in 2019 and 2021.

Being a world champion is a huge deal in mountain biking and the race carries with it more kudos than any other. For one year after the World Championships race, the winner of the World Champs gets to wear a special jersey that signifies them as the World Champion. They can wear that jersey at any race they take part in as long as they are racing that discipline. This jersey is usually white and has the colours of the rainbow in a band on it.

The broadcasted events for the 2022 UCI MTB World Championships will be shown on Red Bull TV. The live stream is, however subject to a geo-block. If a stream isn’t showing when you click the link below, a local broadcaster has the rights in your country.
