After years of postponed CMWCs, travel restrictions and cancelled mess events all around the globe it’s time to ride a worldwide bike messenger competition again. Finally!
2022 : Still no CMWC. But there is one worldwide messenger competition: GlobalGutz!
Last Cycle Messenger World Championships took place in Jakarta in 2019. Sadly this years CMWC had to be cancelled, too.
Three years with no worldwide messenger event? – Too sad!
There is a solution: It’s called GlobalGutz and it takes place in your very own city!!!
2022 GlobalGutz will take place on april 9th.
GlobalGutz is an alleycat race that starts simultaneously at the same time all over the world. This means that at some places people will be raceing at noon while fellow competitors in another place will start at midnight. But:
To prevent locations to have to start their globalgutz alleycat race like at 3am, this years edition comes in two heats. Local organizers choose in which of the two heats they will start their race. Heat one starts at 12’o clock sharp midday (12pm) and heat two starts exactly at midnight (12am) CET (Zurich, Paris, Warsaw, …). This means, that the organizers in Mexico City can choose between 5am and 5pm to start their globalgutz race on saturday april 9th 2022. As an example.
GobalGutz comes with two gender categories: Open and WTN.
Veteran messengers may still remember GlobalGutz, an alleycat that takes place simultaneously all over the world. On april 9th 2022 you’ll be racing a distance of exactly 21 kilometres (13.05 miles) with 5 checkpoints along the way. The fastest riders (Open and WTN) win.
For detailed rules, starting time options and how YOU can participate in GlobalGutz 2022 see rules-page.
Win a trip to the next CMWC!
The winners in both categories, open and WTN, will win trips to the next CMWC. Most likely this will be Yokohama (Japan) in 2023.
The winners of each heat will get free registration to CMWC 2024 Zurich, provided that Zurich gets the worlds…
