UCI TRACK CHAMPIONS LEAGUE – ROUND 4 2021
Dec 4, 2021
The London events will be held in the Lee Valley VeloPark that hosted the 2012 Olympic Games. Both evenings are said to be sold out despite the high number of the COVID-19 cases in Britain. Under new rules, spectators are required to wear a face covering at all times, apart from while seated, eating or drinking.
Double Olympic gold medalist Katie Archibald will be joined by three other British riders in London,with Ed Clancy returning the Olympic velodrome alongside world championship bronze medallists Rhys Britton and Sophie Capewell.
“There’s something special about the track and although it’s a long time ago now, I still have so many great memories from there at London 2012. I love the place and always look forward to coming,” Clancy said.
“I’ll try my best this weekend but I’m not in great form at the moment. I’ve been training well and my back is in a better place than it was in round one but it’s going to be hard for me to set the crowd on fire! Luckily we have Katie, as well as young Rhys and Sophie who will all do well.”
Friday’s Track Champions League begins at 20:00 CET and will be broadcast via Eurosport, GCN+ and a host of international broadcasters.
Cyclingnews will have reports and photo galleries from the two evenings.
