Manchester Velodrome will host the opening round of the winter’s track World Cup series from Friday, October 31 to Sunday, November 2.

It will be the first chance to see Great Britain’s Olympic stars in action after the Olympic Games.

Hopefully British fans will have a handful of Olympic medal winners to cheer and the event will turn into a triumphant home-coming.

Tickets go on sale early next month. The official website www.trackworldcup.co.uk is live now.
