'It doesn't get any better than this' - World Champions storm Sydney for Track World Cup

Every individual 2007 World Champion will race the opening round of the 2007-2008 UCI Track World Cup Classics being staged at Sydney's Dunc Gray Velodrome from 30 November to 2 December.

The UCI (International Cycling Union) finalised the entry list this week and have confirmed 15 of the reigning 2007 track cycling World Champions will be in Sydney as the first step in their bids to qualify for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

"It simply doesn't get any better than this," said UCI Vice President and Sydney resident, Ray Godkin OAM. "The Sydney World Cup will be the most competitive ever and I believe the field assembled in Sydney boasts some of the riders who will win gold next year in Beijing."

395 cyclists representing 48 nations, the biggest field ever assembled for an international track competition, will contest 17 events during the three days of intense competition.

"The importance of the World Cup series for Olympic qualification has seen an unprecedented number of nations and riders enter for both the Sydney round and the Beijing round to be contested a week later," said Mr Godkin. "That's fantastic for local sports fans who are going to be treated to an absolute feast of sporting excellence right here at home."

Headlining the talent will be homegrown champions Anna Meares (Team Toshiba) who claimed the 500m time trial crown in world record time in Majorca in March and Sydney's Kate Bates (T-Mobile) who came back from Spain with the points race gold medal.
