The UCI Track Cycling World Championships at Lee Valley VeloPark from 2nd to 6th March 2016

BC_4

With the Olympic Games in Rio on the horizon, there will be a great deal of interest in the UCI Track Cycling World Championships at the Lee Valley VeloPark from the 2nd to 6th March 2016. Visitors to the iconic velodrome will see how well the Great Britain’s track stars will race against the world’s best for the coveted rainbow jerseys.

Keen to replicate their Olympic glory, the British Cycling team have confirmed the team of 21 riders who will represent Great Britain. Fresh from his victory on the road in the Tour of Qatar, Mark Cavendish will return to the boards to compete in the omnium event. He will also pair up with fellow track stalwart Sir Bradley Wiggins in the Madison – an event the pairing won at the last home worlds in Manchester 2008.
