South America gets a boost

The development of cycling in South America will receive a boost with the opening of a National Technical Centre in São Paolo, Brazil recently. The Centre was officially opened by the UCI's Training and Development Manager, Frédéric Magné, who also discussed the organisation of races in Brazil with acting federation president, José Vasconsellos. Brazil will play host to two of the most important competitions on the continental calendar, the 2006 Pan American Championships and the 2007 Pan American Games, which will take place in São Paolo and Rio de Janeiro, respectively.
