The 2015 calendar will comprise nine rounds: three exclusively for Downhill (DHI), two for Olympic Cross-country (XCO), and four combining the two specialties.

The season kicks off on April 11th and 12th with round one of the DHI in the new venue of Lourdes (France). Although new to the World Cup calendar, Lourdes has already hosted the French Cup, and will present riders with a 2.5km long course that descends 600m in altitude.

The other first-time destination next year is Lenzerheide, Switzerland, which will organize a double event (DH and XC) on July 4th an 5th. This will be the first of three consecutive rounds (2015-2017) in the Swiss resort as it prepares to host the World Championships in 2018.

The overall World Cup winners will be crowned in Val di Sole, Italy, on August 22nd and 23rd. The Italian resort is known for its difficult DH track, and returns to the World Cup calendar after a break in 2014.

Although XC Eliminator will not be represented in the World Cup the race will remain a part of the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships.
