The German, who claimed the overall criterium title during last summer’s series, will headline a strong line-up of European and Japanese cyclists.

Grasmann will be accompanied to the state by four members of his Bavaria-based Maljoa Pushbikers team.

“It’s a hot-shot competition, some of the best you will find anywhere in the world,” he said.

“And the prizemoney? One hundred thousand Australian dollars all up is pretty impressive, too.”

The expanded eight-day carnival format will also see a six-man squad of Japanese riders striving for good results ahead of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Eiya Hashimoto will headline the Japanese contingent in what will be his second visit to the carnivals series. He was runner-up in the Latrobe Wheelrace in 2011 and third in the Devonport equivalent.

Sports Carnivals Association of Tasmania president Mike Gunson said the cycling program would be one of the strongest seen in recent years.

“We have embarked on a program of pursuing fresh faces, along with retaining some experienced riders, and I believe we have come up with an excellent combination,” he said.

Gunson said there was a strong possibility a team of Malaysian riders would also come to the Coast to race.

This summer’s expanded carnivals series will see criterium races staged at Westbury (December 26), Ulverstone (December 29), Burnie (December 31) and Sheffield (January 2).

Track meetings will be held in Launceston (December 27), Latrobe (December 28), Devonport (December 29 and 30) and Burnie (January 1).
