Follow and watch the 2017 Para-cycling Track World Championships

2nd-5th March 2017

It’s a real shame that the 2017 Para-cycling Track World Championships was announced with only eight weeks’ notice, because it meant that a lot of important riders and teams just weren’t able to race – whether for budget or preparation reasons.  It should have been a great move, actually having a Para Track Worlds (not something the UCI prioritises), and running it alongside the able-bodied Track World Cup could be a step towards integrating the Para and Able-bodied Track events, which is something a lot of people have been calling for, for a long time.

The racing is in the Los Angeles velodrome, which last weekend hosted the first Track World Cup in the USA for 10 years.  The last session is going to have a livestream on the UCI website, on Sunday 5th March, at 1pm USA PDT (4pm EDT; 9pm UK GMT; 22:00 European CET; 8am Monday Australian AEST)

Watch and follow the 2017 Los Angeles Track World Cup

24-26th February 2017

It’s time for the final round of the 2016/7 Track World Cup – and I’m here to tell you how we can watch the final session live, and follow the rest of the action as it happens.

It’s really exciting that it’s in LA, as there hasn’t been a Track World Cup in the USA since 2008.

The UCI will have a livestream on Sunday 26th February that will be a mix of live racing, and highlights of the previous days’, starting at 6pm USA PDT (9pm USA EDT; 2am UK GMT; 03:00 European CET; 1pm Monday Australian AEST).

Head to the UCI YouTube or the UCI’s website for that, and for any highlights clips from the racing that might go up before then.
