World Masters Track Cycling Championships 2015
Saturday October 10th is the final day of the 2015 UCI Track Cycling World Masters Championships. We have 2 sessions, one from 09.30 am to 2.00 pm and the final session from 4.00 pm to 8.00 pm.
England’s final World Cup Rugby game against Uruguay will also be played at the Manchester City Etihad Stadium opposite the velodrome.
The Rugby game starts at 8 pm but it is anticipated that spectators may be looking for parking places well before this.
The gates to the velodrome parking areas will be staffed to control this but competitors and spectators should endeavour to arrive around 3 pm if possible.
Enjoy our last day of competition and we look forward to seeing you all next year.

Welcome back to the Championships web site carrying the latest information on the 2015 programme and associated information. We are pleased to publish the 2015 racing schedule for the championships which may be amended subject to entries and any requests made by the UCI.
The age qualification system for the Team Sprint and Team Pursuitwill again be an age group system rather than a cumulative age system. Consequently the Men’s Team Sprint and Team Pursuit will be split in to 10 year age groups, 35-44, 45-54, 55+ This will 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 remain as an official championship but remains as an open age event as will the Women’s Team Pursuit.
In order to accommodate the increase in events the championships will now commence on Saturday afternoon October 3rd with the official training sessions on Saturday morning.
The online entry system is now live and we look forward to seeing your entries and of course to seeing you all in Manchester in October. Entry fees remain unchanged. 2015 will the second of the three year arrangement with the UCI for the organisation of these championships on the superb Manchester Velodrome.
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
