UCI President Brian Cookson, said: “These UCI Urban Cycling World Championships are an historic moment for the Trials, Mountain Bike Eliminator and BMX Freestyle disciplines, as they are brought together for the first time at a single event and venue. It is also a watershed for our Federation, which aims to reach a young and urban audience by organising events in an urban environment. The significant financial contributions awarded to participants are a sign of the importance of these World Championships for the UCI. The equal prize money between genders reflects our commitment to the further development of women's cycling across all its disciplines, and I thank the organiser for the efforts made in this regard.”
