Trackies of the World, Unite!

This March the Para-Cycling Track World Championships, as they did in 2012, will return, and be run, in Los Angeles, when the Velo Sport Center plays host to athletes from around the globe. Five years ago I was able to make it out to first and fourth days of the Championships, and was able to witness some of the most exciting racing action I could have imagined. The Velo Sport Center can really rock when the worlds best cyclists come to  town in competition.

As you may already know, the four day Para-cycling Championships are not a singular honor for the velodrome in Carson, a mere two weeks before those World Championships take place the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup Los Angeles will take place over two days. The last time Los Angeles hosted a World Cup event was 2008, so this is a big deal.

the Para-cycling Track Worlds start off with some pomp and ceremony
