UCI rainbow bands track

The BBC have announced a full schedule of television coverage for next month's UCI Track World Championships at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester (March 26-30, 2008).

Live evening coverage on BBC1 and BBC2 is supplemented by further coverage on interactive digital channel BBCi, plus edited highlights on BBC2 later the same night. The full schedule is below.

If you want to view the event in person rather than watching it on the box, tickets can be bought via the official event website or by ringing the ticket sales hotline 0871 230 2621 (if calling from the UK) or +44 208 616 5114 (international). Demand for tickets has been so high that Saturday night is now completely sold out.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
