Track Cycling

cycling_track3.If there is one sport that has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years it is that of track cycling and Manchester has played a strong role in it's growth in the UK.

The world-class velodrome at Sportcity attracts the best riders from around the world and its superior training facilities enabled British cyclists like Jason Queally to bring home Olympic medals from Sydney.

The velodrome will host the Commonwealth track events and many of the modern stars of the sport will be hurtling round the track at breakneck speeds on their high-tech cycles.

Events will run between 28 July and 2 August and tickets will be in demand for a sport where local riders are expected to do well.
