Russia's Sergei Ustinov takes first place in UCI Paracycling World Cup

Moscow Youth Club athlete Sergei Ustinov took first place in the UCI Paracyling World Cup held late last month in Segovia, Spain.

Ustinov, who is also a member of the Armada Paralympics Club and is sponsored personally by the Uralvagonzavod Corporation, is the first Russian athlete to win the Paracycling World Cup, Ural Business Consulting reports.

This year's UCI Paracycling World Cup drew together 379 male and female athletes from across 38 different countries. The tracks were created to present a large amount of obstacles to racers, including steep hills.

Temperatures in Segovia rose to nearly 87 degrees Fahrenheit during the race but did not ultimately affect Ustinov's performance, according to Ural Business Consulting.
