We appreciate that there has been no events over the last 14 months. Interested riders should seek to compete in events outside of Ireland.

This document is an early notification of the criteria that will be used to select eligible riders and allow riders to be fully prepared for consideration.

The squad size still needs to be confirmed.

Funding would cover travel costs and accommodation only.

NOTE: Permission to travel to the World Championships will depend on the COVID-19 restrictions.

Selection Criteria
The riders must hold a 2021 UCI competition membership licence with the country code “IRELAND”.

The Championship’s registration period runs from 11 June to 8 August 2021.

Riders will be asked to complete a cycling CV to show their results for this period.
