The best Cuban riders nowadays, Arlenis Sierra and Marlies Mejias, head the Caribbean team to attend the 2018 Pan-American Road Cycling Championships (Elite, U23 and Women´s) based in San Juan, Argentina, from May 1-6.

Sierra returned a week ago from Europe, where she had an outstanding performance in the World Tour running for the Italian club Astana Women`s Team, and she currently appears eleventh in the ranking of that event.

Mejias, who is enrolled in the American team Sho-Air Twenty20, is along with Sierra Cuba´s best trump card not only in this continental competition, as they also aspire to several medals in the Barranquilla 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games.

The women´s squad also includes Iraida García, Maylin Sanchez, Claudia Baro and the experienced Yudelmis Dominguez, who has returned with much desire of regaining successes.

On the other hand, the Cuban men´s team is made up by the well-known Pedro Portuondo, Jans Carlos Arias and Felix Nodarse.

The 2018 Pan-American Road Cycling Championships will be attended by a large number of high level riders and it will grant tickets to Lima 2019 Pan American Games.
