As the UCI Track Cycling Nations Cup approaches Hong Kong’s velodrome in Tseung Kwan O, interim coach Herve Dagorne is rallying the city’s cyclists to aim high and ride with confidence. Taking over from the longstanding coach Shen Jinkang, Dagorne, an experienced former Olympian and coach, is urging the team to seize the moment and showcase their talents on the global stage.
The UCI Track Cycling Nations Cup is a prestigious event featuring top cycling nations, and it’s one that Hong Kong’s cyclists are eagerly anticipating. Following a solid performance in Adelaide, where they achieved respectable finishes, the team is now looking forward to capitalizing on the home advantage.
Leading the charge is star rider Ceci Lee Sze-wing, who recently clinched two silver medals at last year’s Asian Games and is now eyeing qualification for the Paris Olympics. With the support of the home crowd behind them, Lee and her teammates are ready to give it their all and deliver standout performances.
Tickets for the event, catering to various budgets, will soon go on sale via URBTIX on February 15, offering fans the opportunity to witness the thrilling races live. While acknowledging the pressure of competing in front of a home audience, Lee is determined to channel it into motivation.
With Dagorne’s guidance and the team’s determination, Hong Kong’s cyclists are poised to make a splash in the UCI Track Cycling Nations Cup and solidify their reputation as formidable competitors in the world of cycling.
