Some of the world's best track cyclists will head to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow in November for the first round of the UCI track World Cup.

Glasgow is the first of four rounds next winter, with Apeldoorn (Netherlands), Cali (Colombia) and Los Angeles (USA) the other host cities.

The Scottish city last hosted a round of the World Cup in 2012/13, which was the first major competition held in the velodrome named after Britain's most successful track cyclist, built for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Apeldoorn hosts a round for the first time, with the UCI increasing the World Cup schedule from three rounds to four.

Glasgow (November 4-6) and Apeldoorn (November 11-13) take place before Christmas, while Cali (February 17-19) and Los Angeles (February 25-26) follow in the new year.

All four events lead up to the World Championships in Hong Kong on April 12-16, taking place in Asia for the first time since 1990.
