The 2010 European Track Championships kick off in Pruszkow, Poland, on Friday November 5 for three days of fast-paced action on the boards of the BGZ Arena.

It’s the first time that a senior elite European Track Championships has taken place. The event has particular resonance as it is the first counting event towards qualification for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Given the championships’ Olympic significance, it’s no surprise to see Great Britain fielding an extremely strong squad featuring past and current Olympic and world champions.

A total of 48 European Union nations will take part in the event.

The event also includes the European Elite Madison Championships on Sunday, November 7.

Cycling Weekly will be covering the European Track Championships with daily reports and results here on www.cyclingweekly.co.uk
