For the first time in the history of the World Cup, Canada's Mont-Ste-Anne venue was left out of the series for 2021 [see No World Cup at Mont-Ste-Anne for 2021], after every event was cancelled or rescheduled because of the pandemic in 2020. Now, Mont-Ste-Anne returns for the 2022 season, back to its traditional early August time period. This will be the first international event at Mont-Ste-Anne since the world championships in 2019.
The 2022 edition of the World Cup will consist of 11 separate rounds - nine (9) XCO/XCC (cross-country/short track) and eight (8) DH (Downhill). Three of the XCO/XCC rounds will be standalone, two of the DH also standalone, and six combined, including Mont-Ste-Anne.
Nove Mesto na Morave
The season is set to begin at the end of March with a standalone DH in Lourdes, France, followed by a standalone XCO/XCC in Petropolis, Brazil, in early April. After a break of a month, back-to-back XCO/XCC rounds take place in early May, at the now traditional Albstadt [Germany] and Nove Mesto [Czech Republic] venues. That will be followed by the classic Fort William, Scotland DH event in mid-May.
From mid-June to early August, five combined World Cups will take place - Leogang [Austria], a-yet-to-be-confirmed location [in Europe], Vallnord [Andorra], Snowshoe [USA] and Mont-Ste-Anne on August 5-7. The series finishes in Val di Sole [Italy] in early September, one week after the Worlds in Les Gets, France [August 24-28].
