Yareli Salazar, Olympic cyclist in the Tokyo Road Test 2020, live a new stage in your career with my mind set on Paris 2024. The Mexican has joined the Ceratizit WTN cycling team, which in addition to being made up of the elite of international cyclists, will give you the opportunity to become the first Mexican to participate in the Tour de France, during the next month of july this year.
“I think it is good that he wears the Mexican colors, in fact they are impressed with how beautiful the flag is and how it looks, how it looks in the squad of the team and It is also very important for them that I be in the Tour de France, that It is the first edition of women and that I am there. It is very important to be the first Mexican to compete in such an important lap at the world level, it is a prideSalazar declared.
Yareli, who in Tokyo 2020 could not compete in the Prueba of All due to problems with the Mexican Cycling Federation, commented that he will continue to seek classification on the track for Paris 2024, although first the body will have to solve the problems before the FIA (International Cycling Union), an institution that gives points to international competitions.
“Right now it affects us at the Mexico level, because for example, if the Mexican Cycling Federation holds a national championship, the UCI rejects it and it has no value or any UCI points. So what we need are UCI points. We need to fix that problem to generate points towards the Olympic cycle”, Commented Yareli Salazar.
On the adjustment within the scholarships of the CONADE (National Commission for Physical Culture and Sports), Salazar trusts that as the year goes by, they will have the necessary incentives in relation to the achievements that each athlete obtains.
“To all of the athletes who are in Fodepar and who have now changed, the scholarship has lowered us, but I feel that based on our results that we have, they are going to give us the sum that we deserve. I believe that in a short time everything will normalize and for the moment I feel calm and I trust that everything will normalize. I only think about winning, being well and having more results this year “Salazar concluded.
