THE next generation of track cyclists will take to the boards of the iconic Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome at Glasgow’s £113million Emirates Arena this summer for the 2013 UCI Juniors track world championships.

The 2013 JTWC comes to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome between Wednesday, August 7 till Sunday, August 11 and will feature some of the very youngest track cyclists from across the world.

Riders will go for gold in a range of events including the team sprint, keirin, individual pursuit, omnium, sprint, madison, points race, team pursuit, scratch race and various time trials over five days of world-class action.

Glasgow joins an elite list of JTWC host cities that includes Los Angeles, Cape Town and Moscow.

Some of the world’s top track cyclists — including the current golden girl of British cycling, Becky James — started on the road to glory at previous JTWC.
