Montreal is running to host the 2026 Road World Cups

The city of Canada has submitted its candidacy to host the 2026 World Road Championships, which will take place in September this year.


The Canadian city of Montreal submitted to the International Cycling Union (UCI) the request to host the 2026 World Road Championships, which would take place in September of that year.

The host city of the 2026 edition will be announced on September 24 at the UCI Congress in Belgium, on the occasion of the next Road World Championships, which will be held from September 19 to 26.

The Canadian event, if designated, would take place just after the only two UCI WorldTour Grand Prix held in the Americas, Quebec and Montreal, which would trigger three consecutive weeks of cycling in Canada.

The World Road Championship has only been contested nine times outside of Europe, being the city of Montreal itself the first to host the event for the first time beyond the borders of the 'Old Continent' in 1974.

Nathalia Goulet, member of the City of Montreal Executive Committee responsible for sports, stated that they were "pleased and proud to support this bid to host the 2026 UCI Road World Championships, which will contribute to Montreal's international reputation and visibility."
