Martyn Irvine competes today in the first round of the UCI World Cup determined to continue a push for a qualification place for London 2012.
Irvine will take part in the six-event Omnium competition. In Apeldoorn two weeks ago Irvine won the scratch race round of the Madison there and finished fifth overall in the competition.
The omnium will begin this afternoon with qualifying, then the flying lap, 30km points race and elimination races will follow.
Tomorrow concludes the events with the individual pursuit, 15km scratch race and kilometre time trial taking place.
Irvine hopes to target a top 6 finish and keep the momentum going through the following three rounds of the World Cup to secure a qualification place for Ireland
