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.”
