PACHUCA, HIDALGO. Edgardo Hernández Chagoya, president of the Mexican Cycling Federation (Femeci), announced that everything is ready for the activities of the Pan-American Ruta Hidalgo 2019 Championship, with the expectation that Mexico will win medals in the three participating categories: feminine, sub23 and manly elite.
“The expectations that I have are to have the three medals of the three events of the route and maybe one of the time trial, but those are my perspectives, being on the podium at least in four of the different tests,” he said.
On his arrival in Pachuca, the leader mentioned that there were already 19 national teams in Mexico, however, they expected the arrival of more than 20 for the day of the first competition.
“I think we’re going to be among the 22 and 24 countries that are going to be present.”
