    Sorry, do you mean races to watch, or races to race in yourself?
  • To race :) Not to watch :)

    Or the federations of the individual countries you are thinking of. Difficult to be more specific unless you are...

    Yes, I get that. But unless you tell people where you are hoping to race, then the best anyone can come up with will be the general UCI calendar.

    I do not have a particular country, I am willing to travel, it was more to see what there is around the world

    Well good luck with that. National/local/regional level racing will be the subject of an individual racing federation's calendar. Probably something best left to you, seeing as nobody else knows where you are planning on travelling.
  • All depends on if you are affiliated to a club, some won't be open to all comers, you you have to go in at the bottom rung i.e. CAT 4/5 depending on the country. Hardly worthwhile going around the world to race in Wednesday night club races to accumulate points which are non transferable to other countries.

    For example in Germany I built up points to race in CAT 2 but on return to UK I had to go back in at 4. Currently sitting at 3 and probably won't go up again after so many injuries.

    Okay, do you have a website, where I can see the races ?

    In the UK, the BC race calendar is here - https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events. Other national federations will have similar calendars.

    You are also going to have to buy a race license for that country to accumulate points. Globetrotting will get expensive buying licenses for every different association

    No need to buy a licence for each federation. If you hold one national federation licence (assuming it is UCI affiliated), then all you need is a letter of endorsement from your federation to race abroad. The points thing is a non-issue. You will register points if the race is UCI ranked, but you cannot simply buy another national federation's licence without some kind of link to that country (ie birth certificate, passport, naturalisation, etc).
  • I had a German license, not German just was there from being posted there in military. I now have a BC license.

    Which is fine, as you had residency. The point I'm making is that you cannot simply just rock up in a random country and buy a race licence. There is no need anyway.
