Top class track racing comes to Manchester velodrome to host this autumn

Tickets for the Senior National Track Championships and the UCI Para-Cycling Track World Championships, both to be held at the Manchester Velodrome this autumn, are now on sale through Ticketmaster.
The Senior National Track Championships will see Olympic and World Champions battle for supremacy against the up and coming generation of track riders looking to establish themselves as the stars of tomorrow for the National Champion titles between 22 and 24 October.
Then, between 6 and 8 November, the Great Britain Para-Cycling Team, which scooped 20 medals in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, will take on competitors from around the world on home turf in the UCI Para-Cycling Track World Championships.
This is the first time British Cycling has hosted this prestigious UCI event, offering fans at home an opportunity to watch in action one of the most successful cycling teams of all time ahead of the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games.
One day tickets cost £5 and three day tickets are priced at £12.50 for both events. Family and concession tickets are also available.
Spectators are encouraged to book early as tickets are sold on a first come first served basis and the same price applies irrespective of seat location within the Velodrome.
All tickets can be purchased via www.ticketmaster.co.uk, in person at a Ticketmaster ticket centre or by calling the 24 hour hotline on 0844 847 2425.
Up to date information about the Senior National Track Championships is available on www.nationaltrackchamps.co.uk. For details of the UCI Para-Cycling Track World Championships visit www.para-cyclingworldchamps.co.uk
This year the Manchester Velodrome will also hold the first round of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics between 30 October and 1 November, bringing three fantastic track events and the world’s best cyclists to the city in a space of just six weeks. There are a limited number of tickets still available for this event via Ticketmaster.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
