GB men qualify second fastest for this evening's team pursuit final against familiar foes Australia...

The BBC will be screening live TV coverage of all evening sessions in the UCI Track Cycling World Championships, which have started in Minsk, Belarus, today and which see British Cycling consign last summer’s triumphs at London 2012 to the past as it focuses on the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Because the event will be televised live in the UK, viewers here won’t be able to watch the racing on the UCI’s YouTube channel, which will however be available to fans in countries where the world championship isn’t being screened live on TV.

Coverage starts on BBC Two at 4.45pm this afternoon, with events to be decided including the men’s kilo and team pursuit, and the women’s individual pursuit and team sprint. The event will also be streamed live on the BBC website, and highlights will be available on BBC Red Button, with full details below.

This morning, the Great Britain quartet of Steven Burke, Ed Clancy, Sam Harrison and Andy Tennant qualified second fastest behind rivals Australia for this evening’s men’s team pursuit final.

Here's the full programme for the event, together with BBC timings.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.

Live on BBC but not on UCI's youtube channel? Will the BBC be putting it on iplayer then?

I imagine UCI will have it available to watch on YouTube afterwards (as with CX Worlds which is all up there), just not while live coverage going on.

British Cycling has a link to the UCI video feed on its website... but if you click on it from the UK, it's geoblocked.
