Posted by Editoress on 12/20/13
The UCI has announced that the 2014 Para-cycling Track World Championships will be held in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The competition will take place from April 10th to 13th at the Bicentenary Velodrome.
Located at an altitude of 1,887 metres in central Mexico, Aguascalientes hosted a leg of the Track World Cup in December for the second year in a row. In May 2013, 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 welcomed today's announcement: "With [the] UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships already awarded to Greenville (USA, 28.08 - 01.09.2014), 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. Congratulations to Aguascalientes and Mexico which have already demonstrated their ability to host major international events."
