Rumors Spread About World Cup Race in Great Britain for 2014
On December 26th, a Belgium-based news source released a story suggesting that in 2014, Great Britain will be host to a World Cup. This news comes on the heels of a UCI meeting where new World Cup venues—namely, the United States— were discussed. So will the UK beat the US to a World Cup?
According to the report, “For the first time in the history, Britain gets a World Cup race, which will continue next winter in Milton Keynes, a town in northern capital, London… The date of the game is already known: November 29, 2014, the last Saturday of the month.”
The possibility is there: the park has rallied for a World Cup before, and influential people including Simon Burney are currently pushing for the project to go forward. There is already a Facebook Page in play, though no new information has been added.
European Championships were already held in Great Britain this year, and won by Brit Helen Wyman, so the possibility isn’t farfetched.
Let us know in the comments: Where would you want to see a World Cup event next year?
