Cycling Canada has announced the teams of riders who will compete in the next three rounds of the Track World Cup, in Hong Kong, Cambridge (New Zealand) and Brisbane (Australia), which will take place over three consecutive weekends, beginning November 29th.

Unlike the first two rounds in Europe, which only had a couple of Canadian riders at each event, Canada is sending full Sprint squads plus a full men's Endurance team to all three events, and adding a full women's endurance squad for Cambridge and Brisbane. These are some of the final Olympic qualification events, along with the final World Cup in Milton at the end of January and the world championships at the end of February, in Berlin, Germany.

"The main goal is to maintain and ensure Olympic qualification in our chosen events - we track progress and forecast very closely after each event," explains Brendon Cameron, Canada's Head Track coach. "We highlighted these three World Cups some time ago as events we wanted to concentrate on coming into with good form. The athletes will then have a short break before final preparation for the World Championships in Berlin at the end of February."
