About the Rio 2024 Para Cycling Track World Championships

The 2024 Para Cycling Track World Championships take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from this Thursday 20 March through to Monday 24 March.

Rio 2024 is the first track Para cycling event of the Paralympic Year. The event is also one of the final opportunities to secure all-important qualification points for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games (Aug-Sep 2024). The 5-strong squad will be looking to deliver their best and secure qualification points for New Zealand at the Paralympics – with results counting towards booking an all-important ticket to Paris.

New Zealand took home a record 10 track medals from the last World Championships. They will be hoping to defend the haul in Brazil next week. 

Who is competing from New Zealand?

What should you watch out for?

Paralympians #222 Nicole Murray (C5) and #225 Anna Taylor (C4) will be heading to the Championships as favourites, having been crowned Omnium world champions at the last edition.

Para Cycling World Championships stalwart Nick Blincoe will have a packed schedule at the event, competing alongside fellow C4 Para athlete Ben Westenberg. Westenberg, who is 18, had his debut in the 2023 World Championships, bringing home a silver and a bronze medal.

Multiple World Championships medallist Devon Briggs (C3) will be looking to build on last year’s four medals in 2024. Just days too young to compete in Tokyo 2020, Briggs will be hungry to show he’s got what it takes to go to Paris.
