UCI .HC road races

  (Redirected from 1.HC)

The UCI 1.HC and UCI 2.HC are the second tier classification of road cycling races by the UCI, after the UCI World Tour (or its predecessor, the UCI ProTour). The races are part of the various UCI Continental Circuits. The 1.HC events are one-day races, whereas the 2.HC events are stage races. 'HC' stands for the French phrase hors catégorie, which means beyond categorization. In 2020, the .HC races will be replaced by the UCI ProSeries[1]

Team participationEdit

In .HC events, UCI WorldTeams may participate, up to a maximum of 70%. The rest of the teams participating may be UCI Professional Continental teams, UCI continental teams and National teams.[2]
