Aguascalientes to Host 2013 World Cup


Aguascalientes to Host 2013 World Cup

10th July 2012: The UCI have confirmed that the third and final round of the 2012/2013 UCI Track Cycling World Cup Series will be held in Aguascalientes, Mexico.

The event will take place from January 17th to 19th 2013 and will be the last World Cup prior to the 2013 UCI Track Cycling World Championships due to be held in Minsk, Belarus from February 20th to 24th 2013.

Built in 2009 and the host of the 2010 Pan-American Track Cycling Championships, the Aguascalientes Bicentenary Velodrome will host Mexico's first World Cup since the legendary 333m outdoor State Sports Institute Velodrome in Aguascalientes hosted a World Cup back in March 2004.

Aguascalientes to Host 2013 World Cup


Aguascalientes is located in North-Central Mexico, it is bordered by the states of Zacatecas to the north and Jalisco to the south. Its name means "hot waters" in Spanish and originated from the abundance of hot springs in the area, the corresponding demonym for the state and its inhabitants is hidrocálido.

The state is located about 480 km (300 mi) from Mexico City. It covers 5,471 square kilometers (2,112 sq mi) and has a little more than one million inhabitants.

Most of its inhabitants live in the densely populated metropolitan area of its capital city.

The state as it is now was created on October 27, 1857 when it was separated from Zacatecas after the tale says that the wife of the governor of the state promised to give a kiss to the President of the time, in exchange for the separation of Aguascalientes from Zacatecas, which explains the shape of a kiss the state has. It bears the name Aguascalientes taken from its largest city and capital also called Aguascalientes.

Aguascalientes to Host 2013 World Cup


The Aguascalientes Bicentenary Velodrome is situated at an altitude of 1,870 meters which no doubt helped Sarah Hammer break two World Records at the 2010 Pan-American Track Cycling Championships.

Hammer teamed up with Lauren Tamayo and Dotsie Bausch to break the team pursuit world record during the second day of competition at the Panamerican Track Championships.

The trio rode its three kilometres in 3:19.569, lowering the record of 3:21.552 set by the New Zealand team of Rushlee Buchanan, Lauren Ellis and Alison Shanks at the 2010 UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark.

American Hammer also set a new world record in the individual pursuit during the qualifying round of the women's event, the mark was a blazing 3:22.269, more than two seconds faster than that set by New Zealand's Sarah Ulmer at sea level during the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.

With December having space for another round of the World Cup there is still plenty of time for a nation from Europe, Asia or Oceania to offer to hold another round of the event.
