The 2015-16 Cyclo-cross World Cup calendar will see races held in Las Vegas and Montreal in an effort to globalise the fast growing discipline.

"After the 2013 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships in Louisville, we look forward to another milestone for this exciting discipline thanks to our first ever World Cup rounds to be held in North America, UCI President Brian Cookson said.

"Las Vegas will provide a spectacular backdrop to the opening round of the 2015-2016 UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup. With the second round of the 2015-2016 Cyclo-cross World Cup taking place in Montreal, Canada, our leading cyclo-cross series is definitely making a big push in North America."

Tabor is the host City of the 2015 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships which will run over this weekend.
