December 20, 2013 – 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 10-13 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.”
