UCI Track Cycling World Cup draws widespread praise
New Zealand’s first ever UCI Track Cycling World Cup has met with widespread praise from international cycling officials, teams and fans.
The event attracted 600 riders and staff from 39 countries to New Zealand for the second of three UCI Track Cycling World Cups, which attracted around 7500 spectators over the three days.
The sport’s ruling body UCI were rich in their endorsement of the event.
“New Zealand has delivered technically a wonderful event, with a sell out crowd each day,” said UCI Vice President Tracey Gaudry.
“The testimony is that there was more than 20 World or Olympic Champions at the event, so it brought a world class field, delivered a premier platform for the athletes and the crowds loved it.”
“From an event delivery perspective, Cycling New Zealand haven’t left a stone unturned, it’s been exceptional delivery, everything has run very smoothly. Track cycling is a highly technical event and certainly the UCI is looking at Cycling New Zealand and saying we’d love to have more track world cups out here.”
A special thanks to the International Teams, the NZ Team who delivered on their Home Track, to the energetic and passionate Volunteers, to our sponsors and supporters, to the Media for their support, to the 7500 Spectators who gave us a sell out capacity house each session and to our online audience who engaged through TV and Social Media.
