The Euro Track Championships are always interesting, but especially so since the UCI changed the rules on qualifying for the World Championships, so that riders have to gain their own points, rather than anyone from their country competing in events for points, and the country deciding who gets to race Worlds.
The programmes of events are on the competition website, and they say that the finals of each session will be streamed live too. The address and times of the livestream hasn’t been published yet, but it could be that page, and the finals sessions start at 19:00 CEST (6pm UK BST, 1pm USA EDT, 10am USA PDT and 4am Saturday Sydney AEDT) on Friday for the Team Pursuit, Team Sprint and Points races and on Saturday for the sprints and omnium eliminations, and 16:00 CEST Sunday for the keirin, end of the omnium and men’s madison.
Probably the best way to keep an eye on what’s going on it via the Euro Track Champs twitter, @EKBaan2013 and with the twitter hashtags #EKBaan2013 and #ECTrack2013. And there are already photo albums from each of the practice days on the competition facebook. Startlists and all the results will be on the site too.
Here’s the promo video for the event – roll on track!
