Richmond, Virginia, is competing with Oman and Quebec to host the 2015 UCI road world championships, the UCI announced Tuesday. At the Tour of Oman last week, the Sultanate of Oman announced its bid to host the event; Richmond announced its bid in December.

The UCI Management Committee decided last year that it would only accept bids from outside Europe for the 2015 event.

The committee will choose between the candidates at its meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark, September 21-22.
