This prestigious competition will bring together throughout the year the best specialists in the discipline in 15 stages in 15 different countries, all of which will qualify for the world championships* in October 2022.

In France, Wish One, already organizer of several recognized Gravel events, has been chosen by the UCI to organize the only French stage of the Trek UCI Gravel World Series in Millau on June 5th, 2022.

Starting from the Parc de la Victoire in Millau, the course will take the participants through the superb Causses landscapes, along a 130km route alternating rustic roads, rolling tracks, single-track, undergrowth and forest paths.

If the Grands Causses territory should charm the riders by its diversity, the course is no less difficult. Indeed, it will be necessary to climb 2500m of positive difference in altitude to reach the finish line located under the Millau Viaduct. A strong technique and a solid physical condition will therefore be required to hope to qualify for the world championships.
