This weekend's Clarence Street Cyclery Cup will have an international feel as riders from the Netherlands, Denmark and Japan line up for a final hit-out ahead of the following weekend's Sydney round of the track World Cup. And with just weeks to go to the Commonwealth Games, riders from Britain and New Zealand are also on Sydney for the two events, as they put the finishing touches to their build-ups for Melbourne.
The Netherlands will be represented by Nikki Terpstra, Geert Jan Jonkman and Jens Mouris. The Danish contingent comprises Daniel Kreutzfeld, Michael Christensen, Alex Rasmussen, Michael Morkov, Jens Madsen and Casper Jorgensen, while three of the British women's team for the Commonwealth Games will take on leading local riders including Australian representative Sky-Lee Armstrong.
New Zealand keirin champion Nathan Seddon will clash with four-times national champion Ben Kersten in at least four events.
