New Delhi: International Cycling Union (UCI) is willing to bring big events such as World Cup and Word tour race to India, provided the government and other stakeholders assure them a hassle-free organisation and proper maintenance of the infrastructure.
UCI President Pat McQuaid said they were keen to tap a big India market but the country would have to convince the world body that it can put the facilities to their best use for getting the hosting rights for Asian Cup and World Cup.
"India is a big market. UCI is very interested in developing cycling in India both road and track cycling. UCI would love to have a world tour race here. If the government and sponsors are interested in assisting the organising of world tour race we would be very keen to speak to them (Cycling federation of India)," McQuaid said.
