Mexico to host final two rounds of UCI Track World Cup 2013/14

Organisers confirm Guadalajara Pan American Velodrome as third host venue

Mexico will host the remaining two rounds of the 2013-14 UCI Track World Cup after Guadalajara was announced as the venue for the third and final event in January.

Aguascalientes’ Bicentenary Velodrome was already confirmed as hosting the second of the three events, after the season kicked off in Manchester last weekend.

And the UCI today announced the series will conclude at the Guadalajara Pan American Velodrome.

UCI president Brian Cookson said: “Mexico has demonstrated a strong commitment to track cycling in recent years, hosting rounds of the World Cup in Aguascalientes.

“The organising team for the Guadalajara round has already demonstrated its ability to host a major international event, and I have no doubt that our World Cup final will be of top quality.”

Guadalajara’s selection represents further good news for south American track cycling fans.  The world championships will be held in Cali, Colombia next February.

Great Britain currently leads the World Cup series overall after a strong showing in their home velodrome delivered four gold medals, two silver and two bronze.

The UCI also confirmed discussions are currently ongoing with several organisers interested in hosting the 2014 Para-cycling Track World Championships.
