Drysdale to race in the Netherlands this weekend

11:46 am on 6 June 2012

New Zealand's champion rower Mahe Drysdale will have another showdown with rival Ondrej Synek of the Czech Republic this weekend.

Drysdale was beaten by Synek at the latest World Cup regatta in Lucerne last month and he is probably his biggest threat at the London Olympics.

The two will line up at the Holland Beker Cup in the Netherlands.

The next major event for New Zealand rowers is the Munich World Cup regatta starting on June 15th.
