The 2022 UCI Gravel World Series is expected to start in Bongabon in the Philippines on April 3 with a race that will be the first of a number of qualifying events ahead of the Gravel World Championships, Gran Fondo Daily News reports.
According to WhenInManila.com, the series and the world championships appear to be sponsored by Trek, although no official details are known at this point.
Gran Fondo Daily News published an unofficial calendar for the series that features 14 races, starting with the Gravel Filippine Bongabon.
The leaked calendar continues with the Wish One Gravel Race in France, the Gravel Adventure in Poland, the Blue Mountains Gravel Fondo in Canada, the Highlands Gravel Classic in the United States, the Gravel Ensenada in Mexico, the Gravel Grit n Grind in Sweden, the Houffa Gravel in Belgium, La Monsterrato in Italy, the Gravelista in Australia, the Kettle Mettle in Canada, the Gravel One Fifty in the Netherlands, the Ranxo in Spain, and the Jingle GX Gravel Race in the United States.
Racers can reportedly qualify for the world championships by finishing in the top 20% of their age group at a series race, although nothing official on that front has been announced either.
The date of the first ever UCI Gravel World Championships also remains unannounced as of February 22.
