The Korean national track cycling team recently arrived in Sydney, beginning their preparations for the Asian cycling championships to be held in Delhi on December 11-18. The eight men and six women of the squad will use a 333m outdoor track in the Sydney suburb of Tempe in order to simulate the track in Delhi, which is also 333m.
Cycling Australia coaching director Ron Bonham said the team signed on to ride the Sydney Thousand track carnival on November 27 as further preparation for the Asian cycling championships. They'll race against some of Australia's best track riders, such as Ryan Bayley, Ben Kersten and Anna and Kerrie Meares at Sydney's Dunc Gray Velodrome.
