New Zealand would be reportedly hosting upcoming Track Cycling UCI World Cup. The grandest stage event is scheduled to be hosted in the month of December at Cambridge based Avantidrome.
Andrew Matheson, the CEO of Cycling NZ, remarked that it would mark an amazing opportunity for Kiwi cycling fans to witness the NZ riders taking on best riders from all across the world.
“From a good competitive perspective, it presents a rare chance for the riders here to contend for the Worlds trophy in their homeland amidst great cheer & support from the home-crowd. It will also relieve them from the stress of overseas travel”, stated Mathewson.
“It is something enormous for us to host this event at Avantidrome – all our riders & staff, fans & people from Cambridge & New Zealand are greatly excited.”
The very opportunity to host such an elite event like Worlds by New Zealand is the result of continuous lead & support from Cycling NZ & Sport NZ.
Peter Miskimmin, the CEO of Sport NZ stressed that the very ability to host the Worlds presents a fantastic opportunity for New Zealand to close the year with aplomb.
“Sport NZ has invested a lot in construction of Avantidrome as some fantastic world-class facility and we are hopeful to host great world-class events here. We are thrilled that our hopes have come to realization so soon just after the opening of our cutting-edge venue”, noted Miskimmin.
Track Cycling UCI World Cup 2015 is speculated to attract around 1000 contenders, officials, staff & media from across 40 nations. It would mark the grandest track cycling championship hosted ever in New Zealand. 3 of the World events will act as qualifying events for Rio Olympics that is scheduled for next year.
