The Track Cycling World Championships


Next Wednesday marks the start of the UCI Cycling World Track Championships 2016, and with 19 gold medals on offer the 26 British riders taking part will be hoping to be spurred on by a passionate home crowd, as this year the event takes place in London.

The event will see the world’s best cyclists compete for the coveted world champion rainbow jerseys at the Lee Valley VeloPark Centre in the capital, which was the home to so much British success at the Olympics in 2012.
This is the 8th time the UK has hosted the event, with the last one being held in Manchester in 2008.

The 2015 Championships were considered somewhat of a disappointment for the British, as they only finished 10th in the medal table with a very modest 3 silver medals.

Well over 50,000 tickets have already been sold, with 9 of the 12 sessions completely sold out.


You can see the British squads below, which include Mark Cavendish for the first time in 7 years, as he partners the 6-time World Championship Gold Medallist, and 3-time Olympic Gold Medallist, and Tour De France winning Sir Bradley Wiggins. The team also includes Olympic Gold Medallist Laura Trott , double Gold Medallist Ed Clancey, and triple Gold Medallist Jason Kenny.

Women's sprint: Becky James, Katy Marchant, Jess Varnish.

Men's sprint: Matt Crampton, Phil Hindes, Jason Kenny, Callum Skinner.

Women's endurance: Katie Archibald, Elinor Barker, Ciara Horne, Emily Nelson, Joanna Rowsell Shand, Laura Trott.

Men's endurance: Steven Burke, Mark Cavendish, Ed Clancy, Jon Dibben, Owain Doull, Chris Latham, Andy Tennant, Sir Bradley Wiggins.
