Tickets for 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships to go on general sale

Tickets for the UCI Track Cycling World Championships will go on general sale on Tuesday 12 May, with tickets available for every session of the event which takes place at Lee Valley VeloPark in London from Wednesday 2 to Sunday 6 March 2016.

The event will see Great Britain’s track stars return to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park venue to compete for the much-coveted gold medals and the chance to head to the Rio Olympic Games as the best in the world.

For cycling and sports fans alike, this is the chance to watch history made and experience the famous velodrome roar which lifted British riders to an amazing nine Olympic medals in 2012.

British Cycling’s cycle sport and membership director, Jonny Clay, said: “Early ticket sales for the event have been very strong, with thousands of British Cycling members being successful in purchasing their tickets in March.It is clear many of the sessions are heading for sell-out. However, I am delighted to be in a position where tickets are available for every session when they go on sale to the general public next week. A partisan, sell-out crowd would be a fitting send off for the team as they look to finalise their plans for Rio 2016 by becoming world champions at an iconic venue, which is already synonymous with great British sporting success.”

The event schedule is packed with racing and there are more gold medal sessions than ever before with world champions being crowned in seven of the 12 sessions. Titles will be decided from day one and the action continues throughout the week with highlights including:

  • Wednesday: The spectacular men’s and women’s team sprints plus the women’s individual pursuit, in which Joanna Rowsell was a winner in 2014.
  • Thursday: Four world titles are up for grabs, including the men’s team pursuit, one of the highlights of any world championships.
  • Friday: Four more golds to be decided with Britain’s women’s team pursuiters looking to hit back at the world-record breaking Australians.
  • Saturday: The prize fighters of the men’s team sprint clash with fans hoping to see Jason Kenny renew rivalries with France’s Gregory Bauge.
  • Sunday: The women’s omnium, the event made famous by Laura Trott will be decided, while the Madison, won in dramatic fashion by Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish the last time the worlds were in Britain, will round off an amazing week’s racing.

Tickets are available to purchase for every session via Ticketmaster when they go on sale at 10am on Tuesday 12 May, although some finals sessions now have limited availability. For the latest ticket sales news and other event information register for updates here.
