Tickets for all key sessions of the upcoming UCI Track World Cup in Glasgow sold-out within an hour, British Cycling has announced.

The November 16-18 meet follows the London Olympic Games in which Great Britain won seven of the 10 available track gold medals.

The World Cup will be held at the new Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome that will also play host to cycling events at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

“With the profile of British Cycling on an all-time high after the Olympics in London we were always confident that we’d fill the venue in Glasgow for the first international track cycling event in the UK after the Games,” British Cycling membership director Jonny Clay said.

“However, the response exceeded our own expectations and it’s clear that the sport will get a huge welcome in Glasgow later this year.”

Councillor Archie Graham, executive member for the Commonwealth Games, added: “We always expected demand for tickets to be high for the track cycling World Cup but to sell out all but one session in just under an hour is a fantastic result and shows just why we are one of the world’s leading destinations for sporting events.”

British Cycling reported an equally swift response to a members pre-sale event last week.

More tickets for the World Cup may be released closer to the date once venue capacity and competitor numbers are confirmed. Tickets for the September senior national track titles go on sale today.
