Hi all,

I am in the fortunate situation that for once as a resident of Hackney I get priority booking for the World Cup track event at the Olympic Velodrome in February. I assume that a schedule is yet to be announced, but am I correct in assuming that the sessions will be the same as previous World Cups ??? Any advice about what would be the best session to see, considering that I will be taking my seven year old son, who knows his Hoys, Wiggins and Cavendish's but little else and my other half who knows less than that. Is the Madison as difficult to understand what is going on for the spectators there as it is for those watching on TV ???

Cheers

  • I chased up the BC today, and at the eleventh hour they've updated their website.

    Here's the schedule from LOCOG

    I'd thought it highly unlikely Cav will be riding, unfortunately there is no Madison in the World Cup. But I think there's a fair chance Wiggo will be riding in the Team Pursuit. Hoy is a given.
    As to what session to go and watch, that's easy to answer, all of them!

    Thanks Colin, what a wonderfully helpful reply. I'd love to do the whole day on Sunday, but not quite sure the rest of the family would agree with me !!!!

    Hi Mark, I too am a resident of Hackney and couldn't find anywhere about the codes for pre sales for this event. How did you get the codes?

    Tried to book this morning at 10am, no joy either.

    cheers,
