In line with Articles 1.2.001 and the articles that follow of the UCI Regulations, each year organisers shall apply to their respective National Federations to have their races included on the world or continental calendar. (Article 1.2.006) With the exception of UCI WorldTour events, the world and continental calendars are determined by the UCI Management Committee on the advice of the Continental Confederations for the competitions which concern them (Article 1.2.005). To be able to be registered on the UCI International Road Calendar, a race must guarantee the participation of at least 10 teams, among which 5 foreign teams.

A mixed team is regarded as a foreign team if the majority of its riders are of foreign nationality. (Article 2.1.003).

The organiser of Cyclo-cross, mountain bike, BMX, BMX Freestyle events on a national calendar in which riders of three or more foreign federations participated (two foreign federations for a Track, a Trials or an Indoor Cycling event), must request the inclusion of the next edition of his event on the international calendar. The event shall not be included on the national calendar, unless its request for inclusion on the international calendar is rejected. The organiser of a Para-cycling event on a national calendar in which riders of many foreign federations participated, as per Article 16.18.003, must request the inclusion of the next edition of his event on the international calendar.

Organisers of C1 events must guarantee the minimum number of nations as per Article 16.18.003, the event will be downgraded to C2 the following year. Regarding Road, National Federations shall send applications for registration to the UCI with a copy to their Continental Confederation no later than July 1st of the year preceding that for which registration is required. For Indoor Cycling, Para- cycling and Cycling for All, the deadline shall be set at July 1st . For Mountain Bike, BMX and Trials, this date is the last Friday of July, and for Track and Cyclo-cross, the deadline is December 15th .

The application of the National Federations must be filed according to the instructions given by the UCI administration and confirms the organiser’s commitment to adhere to the UCI Constitution and Regulations. If an event is raced through several countries, it shall only be included on the calendar with the agreement of the federation of each country concerned. (Article 1.2.006). summary

The calendar for the following year will be presented to the UCI Management Committee for approval. Once approved, the calendar will be published on the UCI website the first working day following the UCI Management Committee meeting. In order to simplify the procedure, an individual answer will not be sent to each National Federation or organiser.

REGISTRATION PROCEDURE FOR UCI CALENDARS 28 UCI SPORTS DEPARTMENT - APRIL 2018 SPECIFICITIES DISCIPLINE BY DISCIPLINE TRACK SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL TRACK CALENDARS CLASSIFICATION The class of the competition determines the points awarded to the participants as per the scale stated in the UCI regulations (Title 3, Chapter III).

As a reminder, it is possible to specify on the registration form the type of class (CC, CL1, CL2, Nat) for each specialisation. The races at a national level (Nat.) can be registered as a complement to the UCI competitions. The evaluation of the competitions registered in the 2018-2019 calendar determines the class in which they will be registered for 2019-2020 season (as per art. 3.8.003).

Any event for which points counting for the UCI Track Classification are awarded will need to respect the formats and/or minimal distances as stipulated in the UCI Regulations, failing this, points will not be awarded. With regard to the minimum criteria for categories, if several categories participate in the same race, the category of the majority of participants will be taken into account only. Younger athletes or masters can participate in elite races to expand the bunch. Nevertheless, riders younger than 18 years old will not score UCI points and must not be taken into account in the analysis of the minimum number of participating nations (article 3.8.003).

18-year-olds junior riders will score UCI points in elite ranking. In any case, all athletes must be included in the results. For the registration of Six Days type of event, the registered event shall be Madison (for example Men Elite Madison); each indidivudal event of that category shall not be registered.

For others tournament, different from the format as regulated by the UCI, (for example Sprinter’s tournament on several days) as stipulated in art. 3.3.005, points will be awarded according to the overall standings of the speciality (for example individual sprint). If the tournament is made of several events (Sprint and Keirin), the event which will award the UCI points shall be clearly identified on the program of the competition and communicated to the UCI Track Department (track@uci.ch). We remind that as per art. 3.3.003, if more than 50% of the riders per category are being invited, the awarded points will be of Class 2 points scale.
