Event description

Description

The Glasgow Sprint Grand Prix is a brand new Track Cycling event at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow.

Track Cycling is a fast and thrilling spectacle. From the cat and mouse tactics of Match Sprinting, to the tension and explosive racing of the Keirin, the Glasgow Sprint Grand Prix offers a full day of racing for all the family.

This, coupled with the finesse of Pursuiting and the skill of the Paracycling Tandems, stands to enhance the legacy of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

In its first year, the Glasgow Sprint Grand Prix can already boast a World Class field, including the current British Sprint and Pursuit Champions as well as Scotland’s first ever female World and Olympic cycling champion, Katie Archibald.

Pitting local up and coming riders against these world class riders will create exciting racing and allow fans to get up close to their Olympic heroes! Tickets are valid for the whole day for which they are purchased. Seats are unallocated however, please sit in the designated area as directed by the Event Stewards.
