The Hong Kong Cycling Association is confident the SAR will win medals at the inaugural Asian Indoor Cycling Championships. Semuel Shing Sau-ping, executive director of the organising committee for the event, said he was sure Hong Kong would perform well although they were fielding a junior side. Indoor cycling is a completely different discipline to road or track racing as it involves balancing skills. The sport is divided into two disciplines, artistic and cycle-ball. Hong Kong's hopes hinge on three siblings - brothers Yu Hok-yee, 15, and Yu Sum-yee, 13, and their sister Yu Lok-chee, 14. 'We have a good chance of winning a medal in the men's pair (artistic) and the women's junior (artistic) sections with the Yu youngsters spearheading our challenge,' Shing said. 'Our team is very young, consisting of almost entirely junior cyclists. 'They are all between 11 and 17 years old, but we still have a good chance of winning at least one bronze medal,' he said. More than 45 cyclists from Japan, Macau and Malaysia will compete in the event on August 16 at the Sheung Wan Indoor Games Hall. Alfred Lee, chairman of the Asian Indoor Cycling Federation, said the local association had played a leading role in promoting the sport. 'Four years ago, we organised the World Indoor Cycling Championships,' he said. 'We felt it was the right time to stage a regional championship to generate more interest.' A training camp and coaching course will be held on August 10, 12 and 14 at the Choi Hung Road Indoor Games Hall.
