Local cycling officials are in the dark as to why Wong Kam-po's entry has not been accepted for next month's World Amateur Championships in Kuala Lumpur. The Hong Kong Cycling Association (HKCA) entered the recent China National Games gold medallist for the race before the deadline earlier this month, but his entry has not been accepted by the Malaysian organisers - and the local association wants to know why. 'We don't know why Wong's entry was rejected but we are hoping to find out the reason,' said a HKCA official. 'We entered his name on time and we don't know whether it's bureaucracy or something else that has caused the confusion. 'It is indeed a problem and we have to gather more information.' The World Championships, from December 12-20, will be Wong's final tune-up before he defends his title at the Tour of South China scheduled at the end of next month. 'We have not received much information about the World Championships even though they are just a few weeks away. We think the road race will be over 188 kilometres and we know it's for riders over the age of 19,' said HKCA senior sports executive Walter Yue. Wong, 24, returned to the territory on Monday after finishing fourth in the Tour of Okinawa last Sunday. The former Asian junior champion complained of thigh cramps mid-way through the hilly course in Okinawa, although he still managed to stay in touch with the leaders and figured in the sprint to the finish line.
