The History of Cycling in FISU

Cycling is a special case among the competitions in the range of the FISU activities. Indeed, if the first World University Cycling Championship was staged in Moscow in 1986, there have only been three editions since then: Palma de Mallorca in 1990, Antwerp in 2006 and Nijmegen in 2008. Cycling was included in the Summer Universiade programme in Edmonton in 1983 as an optional sport, as well as for the Summer Universiade in Shenzhen in 2011. Largely led by the Russian and the Dutch sportsmen, these championships have consistently drawn large numbers of competitors. Organised on racetracks and roads, they were notable for the high technical levels achieved. Paradoxically, our member associations seem hesitative to launch the organisation of cycling championships. In the latest years, mountain biking and BMX got included into the programme and enabled a renewal of the discipline 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.  In Shenzhen, in 2011, cycling was included in the Universiade programme for the first time.
