para cycling

Para-cycling has been left out of the first phase of sports confirmed for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics after the UCI failed to submit the paperwork on time.

Cycling’s governing body missed the 28 July deadline and only sent its application to the International Paralympic Committee last week.

“[It] sums up how high we appear on the UCI radar. Not surprised at all,” tweeted British rider Jody Cundy.
