Brazil was mathematically guaranteed at the 2015 Track Cycling World Championships, which will take place in France between February 18 and 22, but only confirmed the tests and the number of places. The confirmation came on Tuesday (10), released through the International Cycling Union, guaranteeing an unprecedented participation in the history of Brazil.
According to the publication, the Brazilian Track Cycling Team has won the right to compete in three World Cup events: Team Speed, Individual Speed and Omnium. Four athletes were invited to join the green and yellow team. The speed team will be composed of Flávio Cipriano, Kacio Freitas and Hugo Osteti, while Gideoni Monteiro will defend the selection at Omnium and Cipriano will also compete in Individual Speed. The cyclists will be accompanied by coach Emerson Silva, technical supervisor Miguel Torres and mechanic Yoann Le Foulgoc, both from the World Cycling Center of the UCI.
The coach, Emerson Silva, celebrated the bike water bottles and showed enthusiasm for the group: “We struggled a lot to achieve this classification. The World Cup will also be selective for Rio 2016 and only the best in the world can participate. This achievement was only possible due to the excellent work being done by CBC, sponsored by Caixa Economica, enabling all the necessary infrastructure for the selection. I believe that this participation will be a watershed for the Brazilian Track Cycling. The preparation has been intensified in recent months focused specifically on this competition. The goal will be in the top ten in the events we will be playing,”said Emerson.
To participate in the World Championship, countries need to score in the international ranking through the stages of the World Cup. Applying this criterion, the International Cycling Union selected the best cyclists from 40 countries that will be competing in the World Cup 2015. The Brazilians begin their participation on the 18th with the Team Speed race, returning to the track on the 20th, 21st and 22nd. Compete in the Omnium and Individual Speed races.
