Track World Cup Manchester 2017 Preview


After treating my mum to a visit to the Track World Championships for her birthday in 2016, I’m looking forward to going to this year’s Track World Cup in Manchester. Since then I’ve also had the chance to feel a little bit of what it’s like to smash around a velodrome by doing one of the taster sessions at the Derby Velodrome. I’ve got tickets for Sunday evening so will get to see the Madison for the first time, a favourite event for a long time but especially so after the Cavendish/Wiggins race in the 2016 Worlds.

Most of the information on who’s riding this year’s Track World Cup can be found below. Looking forward to the racing!
