within five years and will likely see a World Cup stop as soon as
Peter Van den Abeele, the UCI's cyclo-cross coordinator, says a world
championships and a World Cup stop in the United States is a real
"I will be traveling to America and seeing about what kind of
interest there is there," Van den Abeele told VeloNews. "I would like
to see a World Cup race in USA sooner, maybe even next season, and
why not the world championships? Cyclo-cross is really growing in the
United States and I'd like to take the world's there, but maybe not
until 2009 or 2010."
Van den Abeele joined the UCI in December, 2003 to help invigorate
cyclo-cross and streamline the sport with a newly structured World
Cup schedule. He said expanding the sport beyond its hotbed in
Belgium and Holland is the next natural step, with the United States
playing a big role in the future.
