Track World Cup – Manchester

Tomorrow, on the 10th November, Manchester’s Velodrome will be filled with cyclists and fans alike for the Track World Cup which is running until 12th November.

Tickets are priced between £16.20 and £26.95, with the Saturday night already sold out and you can get them here but be quick!

 

Some of the best riders from all over the world will be competing in order to gain qualifying points for the 2018 UCI Track Cycling World Championships. There will be 300 athletes in total competing head to head to get to the Championships.

The British team we have put forward this year is made up of three smaller teams which include six Olympic champions. Callum Skinner and Phil Hindes will be competing in the sprint events and then Jack Carlin, Ryan Owens and Joe Truman will also be competing. Katy Marchant, Olympic Bronze Medalist will be competing also.

Ed Clancy is also returning to the competition following his success in Rio and will be in the endurance category along with Steven Burke.

Ed was quoted as saying:

“I have a lot of good memories of racing in Manchester, the highlight of which is always the atmosphere and knowing the crowd is behind you.

“I enjoyed taking some time away from the track last season to focus on the road, but I’ve been back in training at the velodrome for the past couple of months and I’m really enjoying it.

“A lot of younger riders have stepped up since Rio and there’s so much emerging talent across all the disciplines, it’s an exciting time to be a member of the Great Britain Cycling Team.”  (Source)
