About the Track World Cup

The UCI Track Cycling World Cups are a huge step on the ladder towards World Championships and Olympic qualification; they determine each country's international ranking and provide a showcase for the best international track racing on the planet.

Manchester is the first round of the 2013-14 UCI Track Cycling World Cup series and is a return to much loved track at the National Cycling Centre.

The programme of racing in each round mirrors the events you will see in the Olympic Games every four years so the UCI Track Cycling World Cup is a great place to really get into the sport of track cycling, learn about the legends of the sport and experience the thrill of witnessing the world’s top cyclists in action.
