Welcome to the first European Championships organized in Romania!

From May 8th to 12th 2024, Cheile Grădiștei is delighted to welcome the 2024 UEC MOUNTAIN BIKE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS XCC – XCR – XCO to its grounds.

During this timeframe, Elite, U23 and Junior athletes from all over Europe will compete on tracks specially prepared by our team. 

Cycling in Romania has grown considerably in recent years. The success of elite cyclists such as Vlad Dascălu and Ede Molnar, has revitalized the sport. It has also inspired young talent to take up cycling. This surge in interest has prompted the Romanian authorities and various organizations to support cycling. This has culminated in the unprecedented success for Romania of hosting the 2024 UEC MOUNTAIN BIKE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS XCC – XCR – XCO.

This exhilarating event will feature a lineup of legendary European riders who have left their mark on the world of mountain biking, including Vlad Dascălu, who will defend his European XCO title and Ede Molnar, who claimed the European XCE title in 2023.

The stunning European Champion jersey stands as the ultimate prize in this competition, drawing a large crowd of spectators who will gather to witness the showdown among Europe’s top riders, in Cheile Gradistei, Brasov. 

Live coverage throughout the 2024 UEC MOUNTAIN BIKE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS on TV will be broadcasted by Eurosport in over 20 countries.

Volunteers play an important role in providing direct services, which is critical to the success of sporting events. As very well guessed, we are out recruiting volunteers. If you are not shy of the hard work that volunteers put in, that work that keeps the wheels moving on the cycling movement, helping those who are already taking part, and making those who are new joiners feel extremely welcome and safe, then you should take part in this event, that will be nothing short of spectacular.
