The Aztec squad of Canel’s Pro Cycling declined to attend the Vuelta Costa Rica, as reported by the Costa Rican Cycling Federation (FECOCI), which continues to finalize the details for the contest that will begin on December 16 until the 25th.

As learned, the Aztec team told the organizers that three of their main climbers are not in good health and do not have more runners ready for the return. Oscar Herrero, vice president of FECOCI, regretted the news.

“FECOCI is now looking for second options from other international teams that had shown interest in the national turn,” he told the local press.

In the last few hours, Boyaca runner Heiner Parra, a member of Canel’s-Zerouno-Mavic, confirmed that for reasons of force majeure the Mexican squad will not be in Costa Rican territory.

“They notified me yesterday that we were no longer traveling to Central America, so I will continue here in Boyacá preparing for the National Championships,” said Parra.

Similarly, Parra told us that they were invited to the Tour Colombia 2024. “The team notified me of the good news,” added the beetle, who has just finished top 10 in the Vuelta a Guatemala.

The Costa Rican cycling event, which is part of the UCI international calendar, will feature the participation of four foreign teams from Ecuador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala and the Netherlands.
