The 2006 World Deaf Cycling Championships (WDCC) committee has released its event schedule, with the USA hosting the international week-long event from June 19-24 for the first time ever. The championships will feature elite contestants from 10 countries, with venues including the Hellyer Velodrome, Coyote Lake, Santa Teresa Park and Pescadero, all in the San Jose, California, USA area.
On June 19, Hellyer Velodrome will host the 1000m sprint, before the June 20 individual time trial at Coyote Lake. The short track mountain bike race at Santa Teresa Park will take place on June 21, followed by a return to the velodrome for the points race at Hellyer Velodrome on June 22.
