Jody Cundy has slammed the UCI’s decision to hold a Para-Cycling World Championships in seven weeks’ time, calling it a “joke.”
The UCI confirmed on Monday (January 9) that the world event is to take place in Los Angeles from 2-5 March, meaning athletes have just seven weeks to prepare.
And Cundy, who won two gold medals in last year’s World Championships, took to Twitter to criticise the lack of notice given.
“So it’s really happening, 7 weeks notice for a World Championships. Will anyone turn up? Poor Logistics teams,” he said.
“I’m all up for racing and new events, but a full blown world champs with 7weeks notice. Seriously what a joke.
