Details: After the success of the cycling events at the Olympics, people have the chance to see more top flight track racing at the British Cycling Senior National Track Championships.
The championships return to the Manchester Velodrome at the National Cycling Centre from this September and promises spectators five days of gripping competition to mark the start of another thrilling winter season of exciting track racing.
Cycling fans will have the opportunity to see competitive track racing at its best as some of Britain’s leading riders go head-to-head for the coveted national titles. There will also be the chance to watch the next generation of cycling talent launch their careers, just as the likes of Sir Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton, Jason Kenny and Laura Trott have done before them.

Tickets can be purchased via www.ticketmaster.co.uk from Friday, 24th August, at 1pm.
Councillor Rosa Battle, Manchester City Council executive member for culture and leisure, said:
“Interest in cycling is at an all time high following Team GB’s momentous success at this year’s Olympics and I’m certain the British Cycling Senior National Track Championships will be incredibly popular.
“The championships will give people the chance to see a major competition at the venue that was crucial in helping British cyclists win such an impressive hall of medals at London 2012.
“The National Cycling Centre is open to everyone and I hope that seeing some of the country’s best athletes compete will inspire a future generation to get on a bike and give the sport a try.”
