If, like the vast majority of us, you missed out on tickets for the track cycling events at London 2012, later this month you have one last opportunity to get a seat in the velodrome to see some of the world’s top cyclists in action with tickets going on sale at 10am sharp on Thursday 17 November for the Olympic Test Event.

That event, in the UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classic series, takes place between 16 and 19 February next year and marks the first competition at the venue in East London’s Olympic Park, with tickets priced between £10 and £40.

Part of the London Prepares series, tickets will be sold online by Ticketmaster and due to Visa’s sponsorship of the Olympics, only debit, credit and prepaid cards issued by that company can be used to buy them.

The same day sees tickets also go on sale for test events in gymnastics at the O2 Arena and diving at the Olympic Park’s Aquatic Centre.
