OCBC Cycle Singapore 2011 is set to hit the streets of Singapore tomorrow and Sunday as more than 10,000 participants gear up for an action-packed weekend on two wheels. The press conference took place today at official hotel Conrad Centennial Hotel with Managing Director of Spectrum Worldwide, Chris Robb, joined by top international cyclists Ben Kersten, Alessandro Bertolini, Anuar Manan and member of OCBC Singapore Cycling team, Adi Putera.
Reigning champion Ben Kersten, from Team Fly V Australia, is out to defend his Professional Criterium title against a line-up that includes a mix of World Champions, World Record Holders and Commonwealth Games Gold Medallists. Kersten said, “I’m thrilled to be back here again at OCBC Cycle Singapore and to be defending my title makes it even more special. There is an incredibly strong field of cyclists here this weekend and it will be a great spectacle under the lights for everyone to enjoy.”
Now in its third year, OCBC Cycle Singapore has expanded to a three-day event that kicks off tonight with the Rock & Ride Music Festival, presented by OCBC Cards. Staged at the F1 Pit Building, the free Festival features an outstanding line-up of local acts and will run from 6pm to 11pm on 4 and 5 March.
Stay tuned as we bring you more coverage from the event tomorrow…
