the track by actually riding along with the riders. He, who was a very famous track sprinter, rode closely
with the riders on the track and coached his know-how and techniques. With cooperation with Dr. Chester
Hill, head coach of WCC-KS recommended by UCI and WCC, Ross Edgar underwent track training for
participants in preparation for the 2015 Yangyang International Track Championships in Korea which is a
class 3 UCI track event.
Ross Edgar tells “WCC-KS has utmost training environment for riders and coaches from various nations.
The facilities and equipment furnished are in highest quality and the training programs provided are very
useful and helpful for the development of riders and coaches’ abilities in cycling. I was very impressed with
the passion and hard effort of WCC-KS in order for the progress of cycling, especially in Asia. It is surely a
golden opportunity for riders and coaches to be part of WCC-KS training camp.”
