UCI Track World Championships

Today sees the start of the 2017 UCI Track Cycling World Championships, hosted this year in Hong Kong’s inspired elliptical velodrome. British Gold Medalists Elinor Barker and Katie Archibald, and sprinter Callum Skinner, will be among the many international athletes competing in 20 vigorous events held over five days.

Here’s wishing Team GB lots of luck and remember your close shave for that quicker track time.
