Cycling: Three world champions to line up at OCBC Cycle Singapore

Three track omnium world champions are looking to make their mark on the professional criterium, when the OCBC Cycle Singapore returns to the F1 Pit Building on April 26.

Following the retirement of last year's winner Robbie McEwen, Britain's Ed Clancy (2010), Australia's Michael Freiberg (2011) and New Zealand's Aaron Gate (2013) will lead a field of over 60 riders on a 90-minute race around a 1.6-km route.

"This will be my first time racing in Singapore so I am looking forward to the opportunity to be part of the team this year," said Rapha Condor Sharp JLT's Clancy, a two-time Olympic gold medallist in the team pursuit event.

"There will be some stiff opposition in the line-up but Singapore would be a great place for our team to make the podium so we'll be giving it our all."

The professional criterium race will get underway at 8.30pm on April 26. Admission is free.
