All riders registration should be received before Wednesday, 27th of July 2005.
Each National Federation has received a "login" and a "password" to register their riders, their officials and their accompanists directly via internet. Any Federation that do not have internet connectivity can contact the UCI Event Department to determine how to register their riders.
In Salzburg cycling is very popular. The bicycle is the most favoured means of transportation in the population, the network of cycle paths is one of the most densely structured throughout Austria. Additionally professional cycling is quite significant too. Thus I am especially pleased that we succeeded in our bid to host the 2006 Road World Championships in Salzburg. The World Championships as one of the biggest sport events, taking place on venues all over world and each year, is an important multiplicator for race cycling and an unforgettable event for the fans of cycling – hence the preparations run at full speed. Already now I am looking forward to the competitions and the finishes in the heart of our city!
