World Masters Track Cycling Championships 2016
Welcome to the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Masters Championship Web Site.
This year will be the last time that the championships are being held in the Manchester Velodrome at the National Cycling Centre as the event moves to Los Angeles in the USA for 2017 and 2018.
We hope that all the competitors who have enjoyed the last 5 years and the initial 12 events in Manchester from 1995 to 2006 will come back to make this 22nd championship the best and most well attended event ever.
The Championships are scheduled from Saturday, October 1st to Saturday, October 8th although we still wait UCI & British Cycling approval. This draft schedule is always subject to amendment if necessary.
The draft racing schedule has now been added to the site and can be viewed HERE as well as in the rider and spectator information pages.
The coverage of the 2015 Championships on You Tube was very successful and we are planning on repeating this. The 2015 coverage can stilll be seen by clicking HERE
The age qualification system for the Team Sprint and Team Pursuitwill again be an age group system with the Men’s Team Sprint and Team Pursuit being split in to 10 year age groups, 35-44, 45-54, 55+ This may be further expanded should entries be sufficient as at least 6 teams in each age group will be required. The women’s Team Sprint will again be an official championship and remains as an open age event as will the Women’s Team Pursuit.
The online entry system wil lsoon be live and we look forward to seeing your entries and of course to seeing you all in Manchester in October. Entry fees remain unchanged.
Once again we are able to offer discounted prices at out hotel partners Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express which we hope you will take advantage of when entering. Our official transport system will again operate from these hotels.
We look forward to another successful week of championships and some spectacular racing and your own personal achievements.

Director of Organisation
