Irish Riders Compete in UCI Para Road World Cup - Belgium


Irish Riders Competing in UCI Para Road World Cup, Belgium

A large number of Irish riders are competing in the UCI Para Road World Cup in Belgium this weekend, in the last opportunity for riders to seek selection for the Paralympic Games in Rio. Ireland has qualified four male bikes and two female bikes for the Games and with competition tight for these positions, twelve bikes will be competing across the Time Trial and Road Race events over three days, with competition taking place in Ostend, Belgium, from the 20-22 May.

Speaking ahead of the World Cup, National Performance Coach, Neill Delahaye said “This second round of the UCI Para Road World Cup is a landmark event for us. We have a record number of entries which shows the dynamism and progression of our domestic Paracycling programmes. Everyone is keen to perform at their best as these races are one of the last viable opportunities to earn Rio selection points and provide a valuable opportunity to race against the same bikes and nations we expect to be competitive at the Games. There is a big entry for this World Cup and we are looking forward to mixing it with the best in the world once more.”

The number of riders competing for the six slots for the Paralympic Games is testament to the growth in both numbers and standard of Paracycling in Ireland. The World Cup takes place over the weekend of 20-22 May.
