Organiser's Press release

Three’s A Crowd-Puller - Top women’s road champions set to do battle in Wales at UCI Road World Cup

The scene is set for a great battle on Welsh roads as the reining Olympic Champion, the World Champion and the current holder and World Cup series leader have confirmed they will ride this key 8th leg of the UCI Women’s Road World Cup in Newport on 20th August.

 

Coming to British soil for the first time, the race will pitch Australia’s formidable current Olympic Champion Sara Carrigan (team Tan Van Bemmelen), against team Nurnberger’s World Champion Judith Arndt of Germany, and 2004 World Cup winner Oenone Wood of Australia, who will be looking to hold on to her lead of this year’s current World Cup.

 

Also joining this trio of champions in Newport will be a veritable Who’s Who of women’s cycling, including Suzanne De Goede (NED, Van Bemmelen) and the ever-formidable Katherine Bates (Aus, Van Bemmelen). Also on the line will be one of the hottest favourites for this leg, Commonwealth Champion Nicole Cooke, who will be riding in front of her home crowd and hoping to put the disappointment of the Giro behind her with a win on her native soil.

 

Oenone Wood, who will be racing in the UK for the first time at the World Cup comments “I’ve heard rumour that the course is fairly tough, so I am looking forward to seeing it first hand. The race is pretty important to the overall standings of the World Cup so my Nurnberger team will be motivated for a win. We might have a bit of competition though, especially from British riders looking for a result on home territory.”

 

 

Bill Owen, Race President of the UCI Women’s Road World Cup comments “Wales is fast becoming a popular choice for international sporting events, and the World Cup, attended by many of the world’s leading women’s cyclists, provides excellent evidence of this. Now with the 2012 London Olympics on the horizon, I hope many of young people who come to watch the race, will be inspired to try a little bit of pedal power for themselves and who knows, it may take them all the way to the Olympic podium”.

 

The event is being supported by the Welsh Assembly Government, Health Challenge Wales, Newport Unlimited, Newport City Council, Sports Council for Wales, UK Sport, Welsh Cycling and British Cycling.
