The last round of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup takes place in Hong Kong for the first time over January 16 and 17. The Hong Kong Velodrome, inaugurated in December 2013 and located in Tseung Kwan O, will host its biggest competition to date as the world’s top cyclists ride into town. Up for grabs are qualification points for this year’s Olympic Games to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Look out for local hero Sarah Lee Waisze. The 28-year-old sprinter, a bronze medal winner from the London 2012 Olympic Games, is looking to secure her spot in this summer’s Games. The World Cup trophy will be presented to the nation with the greatest number of points in each of the track cycling disciplines.
