Two major recumbent events will be near the Rhein river. I have written about the SPEZI show in Lauchringen several times already. The second event will be the HPV World Championship in Lustenau, Vorarlberg, Austria. Although the preparations are in the very early stage, there is a preliminary program already. Here is what Andy Gerber wrote about the World Championship in the euSupino magazine:

HPV World Championships 11 to 13 August 2023 in Lustenau, Vorarlberg Austria 

The Parkstadion Lustenau is planned as the center of the World Championships. Currently, the organization team around Werner Klomp is in the process of defining the course and obtaining the necessary permits.

The following program is planned: Friday evening Hill climb. Saturday morning Sprints. Saturday afternoon 1-hour race. Sunday 3-hour race. The tracks of the two long races are expected to be winding and twisting, and we hope to be able to offer challenging and exciting races. For the mountain race, we hope to be able to race on the other side of the Rhine on Swiss soil. For the sprints, we will  find long, flat, and straight tracks, possibly along the Rhine dam.

Important: Deviations and changes reserved! As of December 2022, the planning could not yet be finalized. We are optimistic, but important definitive approvals are still pending. Further information, the program, and updates will follow on the homepage (currently still under construction): or the World Championships thread at

So, save the date, do planning, and come race or support the racers. It is a great sporting event. If you want to remember the last championship in Orgelet, France, please, watch my video from the event.
