The History of Cycling in FISU

Cycling had its first World University Championship in Antwerp, Belgium in 1978. Since then, five other Championships have been organised: 1986 Moscow, Russia, 1990 in Palma de Mallorca (Spain), 2006 in Antwerp (Belgium), 2008 Nijmegen (the Netherlands) and 2014 Jelenia Gora (Poland). These Championships have consistently drawn large numbers of competitors and increasingly attracted more spectators. Organised on racetrack and road, they were notable for the high technical levels achieved. In the latest years, mountain biking and BMX were included into the programme, enabling a renewal of the sport within FISU. Indeed, mountain biking and BMX have seen remarkable development and the enthusiasm they generated in university circles entered this type of event into the regular programme as of 2006. Cycling was included twice as an optional sport of the Summer Universiades: 1983 in Edmonton (Canada) and 2011 in Shenzhen (China). The 7th World University Cycling Championship will be organised for the first time out of Europe and will be the first FISU event in the Philippines, namely in the city of Tagaytay.
