by CyclingTips

The International Federation for Sport for Parathletes with an Intellectual Disability (INAS) announced that its 2017 World Cycling Championships will be in Assen, The Netherlands, and will take place as part of the UCI’s European Junior Cycling Tour, between July 30 and August 4.

“I am delighted to see these Championships coming to The Netherlands,” Rinus Verboom, Inas’ cycling director, told Inside the Games.

“We have some fantastic cyclists, and the event provides a platform for them to perform against some excellent young cyclists. My thanks go to the local organisers for making this event possible.”

The combining of the two events will total more than 700 cyclists and offer the INAS athletes an opportunity to compete against talented junior riders while going for separate world titles.

The 2016 event was held in the Czech Republic.
