Colombia, which leads a team of 17 athletes in which it mixes youth and veterans, aims to appear in the group events at the Pan American Cycling Championship that will be held at La Videna veldrome, in Lima, from June 25 to 29.
In Lima, 164 athletes from 20 countries will meet, who will seek to obtain the highest distinction of the continent in the elite category, in addition to seeking quotas for the next Pan American Youth Games, which will be held in the Colombian city of Cali between November 25 and on December 5 of this year.
Technician Andrs Felipe Torres told the sports page PaisaDeportes that Colombia will focus on seeking medals in the points test, the madison, the team pursuit and the individual pursuit.
Brayan Snchez, Juan Esteban Arango, Julin Osorio Henao, Jordan Parra and Brayan Gmez will be there for this.
In speed, the Colombians will be led by Kevin Quintero, who is looking for the optimum point to compete in the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
“We are hungry to run,” said Quintero, who recalled that the pisteros have not run internationally for practically a year and a half.
Also on the roster are Marianis Salazar, multiple junior Pan American champion in speed; Julin Osorio, Yarli Mosquera and the talented Lina Rojas and Marcela Hernndez, recent protagonists of the podium in the time trial of the National Road Championship.
The delegation is expected to travel this Wednesday from Bogota to Lima.EFE – EFE Agency – All rights reserved. All types of reproduction are prohibited without the written authorization of the EFE S / A Agency.
