UCI takes Para-cycling Track Worlds to Mexico

The International Cycling Union (UCI) has announced that the 2014 Para-cycling Track World Championships will be held in the Mexican city of Aguascalientes.

The competition will take place from April 10-13 at the Bicentenary Velodrome. Located in central Mexico, Aguascalientes hosted a leg of the Track World Cup in December for the second year in a row. In May, the 250-metre track welcomed a national Para-athletics event. With two velodromes, Aguascalientes has a long-standing experience in staging major track events in the past.

UCI president Brian Cookson said: “With UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships already awarded to Greenville (USA), I am delighted to say that we have now a full, robust and exciting calendar for Para-cycling in 2014. We had several organisers interested in hosting the 2014 Para-cycling Track World Championships and I would like to thank them all.”
