Press release: 2014 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships awarded to Aguascalientes

Date:

20.12.2013

Description:

The UCI announces today that the 2014 Para-cycling Track World Championships will be held in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The competition will take place from April 10 to 13 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 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.”
