As per the official qualification system for the 2023 UCI Gravel World Championships, Gravel Fondo Limburg grants qualification rights for the UCI Gravel World Championships 2023 in Veneto, Italy for those riders finishing in the first 25% of the official qualifying distances in specific age groups.
These are the specific age categories and related course distances:
Women 19-49 years: 113 km race (three loops race)
Women 50+ years: 79 km race (two loops race)
Men 19-59 years: 113 km rac (three loops race)
Men 60+ years: 79 km race (two loops race)
Every rider will automatically participate in the overall ranking (women or men). But this is not the official qualifying category.
Please note: you can start in a different distance then stated above, but if you do not enter the officialy qualifying distance for your age category you are not eligible for qualification for the UCI World Championships.
Age Groups applicable to the UCI Gravel World Series are defined by the rider’s age on December 31st of the year of the qualifier event.
Riders that will not turn 19 in 2023 (calendar year) cannot qualify for the UCI World Championship. As the minimum age to participate in the UCI Gravel World Championships is 19 years old, only riders born before 31 December 2003 can qualify for the UCI Gravel World Championships 2023. For events organized in the same year and immediately following the World Championships (October-December), riders aged 18 at the moment of qualification may already qualify as they will turn 19 in the year of the UCI Gravel World Championships 2024.
The 25% qualifiers is calculated based on the number of starters in each age group, and not on the number of riders having finished the race. Qualification is always per age group and based on age group results, not on overall results. Top 3 riders in every age category are automatically qualified. Riders must finish the race to gain qualification.Check out the full regulation
