Invercargill accountant Erin Criglington will try to defend her individual pursuit title at the world masters track cycling championships next week.
Criglington won the women's 40-44 years pursuit in Manchester last year and hopes to win another rainbow jersey at the same venue when the championships get under way on Saturday.
The leading masters rider will have a busy schedule at the championships, including the 2000m individual pursuit, 500m time trial, scratch and points races and sprint.
She will also combine with Dutch rider Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen in the team sprint.
The masters championships are a popular event, with 430 entries from 33 countries taking part.
Criglington also won silver medals in the time trial and scratch race at last year's championships.
