Affiliated to the International Cycling Union (UCI) since September 2011, Mozambiqueâ€™s Cycling Federation has numerous projects to develop cyclingâ€™s different disciplines. On Monday, its President Danilo CorreÃ¬a talked about these in meetings with UCI President Pat McQuaid and the Manager of Continental Confederation and National Federation Relations Dominique Raymond.
Danilo CorreÃ¬a, who recently became a member of his countryâ€™s National Olympic Committee and of the African Cycling Confederationâ€™s Management Committee, talked about his plans to develop not only road cycling but also track cycling, BMX and mountain bike both in Mozambique and on the African continent. His enthusiasm and energy will be a precious asset in his quest to make these projects a reality.
The President of the Mozambique Federation took advantage of his visit to ask advice from UCI Track Coordinator Gilles Peruzzi about the future construction of Mozambiqueâ€™s first velodrome. Mr CorreÃ¬a also exchanged a few words with World Cycling Centre Director FrÃ©dÃ©ric MagnÃ©.
