Track World Championships on the BBC

Jason Kenny in action for Great Britain

Great Britain’s Jason Kenny will take part in the men’s team sprint

Watch and listen to live BBC coverage of the UCI Track Cycling World Championships as Britain’s finest take on the world’s best compete at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London from 2-6 March.

Sir Bradley Wiggins is the star turn at the velodrome where Great Britain swept all before them at London 2012. After winning the Tour de France and Olympic gold in 2012, Wiggins is concentrating his efforts on the team pursuit for Rio 2016, and goes for the world title on Thursday.

Friday sees the women’s pursuit squad go for gold. The team – led by Laura Trott – won pursuit gold in this same velodrome at London 2012. Standing in the way of Trott and her team is a formidable Australian team – the current world record holders.

Three-time Olympic gold medallist Jason Kenny faces France’s Gregory Bauge as he goes for sprint gold on Saturday, while the women’s omnium, the event made famous by Trott, and the madison round off the week’s racing.
