Wong Kam-po will make his World Cup debut this week in confident mood after coming away with a podium finish at the Russian national championships in Moscow, which were serving as a warmup event. Sunday's 40-kilometre World Cup track race in the Russian capital will be the biggest test for the Asian Games road race champion since he qualified for the Olympics in a track event and not his specialist discipline. Wong, however, has already proved he has the potential to race at the top level in an event relatively new to him as he only just missed out on a victory at the Russian national championships, finishing third on points difference. Hong Kong coach Shen Jinkang said the 26-year-old star has been showing sharper form than ever before. 'He's going to provide a hint on how well he will be able to do at the Olympics when he competes against the top riders on Sunday,' Shen said. 'He's got a better feeling about how to race to his best in the velodrome after weeks of training in Malaysia and here,' Shen added. 'He seldom raced in track events before but I believe he can become a better all-round cyclist when he returns to road racing after all the training and competition on the track is over this year.' In the 40km warmup race, Wong and the two leading Russia riders dominated the race, lapping the remaining field of 51 competitors four times. Shen said Wong delivered a good tactical finish to the race. 'He started to attack after having completed 10km and joined the leaders to move a lap ahead of the others. After that, he used his energy wisely and successfully launched three more attacks,' Shen said. Wong's globe-trotting schedule will see him travel to Cali in Colombia and Mexico City for the next two World Cup events. He will then join his teammates in Shanghai for the Asian Championships before taking part in the final World Cup event in Malaysia in August.
