Panajachel, Guatemala was the host to the 18th annual 10-day international Cycle Messenger World Championship, and will introduce for the first time an outdoor figure-8 velodrome: La Ocho. Working with graduates from the architecture faculty and Institute for Aerospace Studies at the University of Toronto, as well as the Toronto- based organizer Nadir Olivet of La Carrera Cycles, the physics, construction and planning of this event and facility were set into motion.     PDF
