The momentum from Hong Kong’s strong performance in the Guangzhou Asian Games is pushing cycling up a gear.
The sport’s local association, with backing from HSBC, is staging the Tour of South China Sea, with Wong Kam- po as its main attraction.
Wong led Hong Kong cyclists to four gold and four silver medals plus a bronze in the Asiad, where the territory wound up with a total of 8-15-17.
Riders from China, Austria, Switzerland, Japan and other countries will join the 22-kilometer race, which starts and ends in Central on Sunday.
Organizers not only expect many to watch the event, but also join in the several side events for charity.
