Day One of the first ever Glasgow Sprint Grand Prix at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome. A full day of racing starts at 10am featuring world class riders from all across Europe and tickets are available.
Over the course of this weekend the Glasgow Sprint Grand Prix will showcase one of Glasgow’s most iconic sporting venues. With British, World and Olympic Champions already confirmed the Glasgow Sprint GP is set to awaken the memories of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games allowing fans and local riders alike to get up close and witness the high speed entertainment that is track cycling.
The race programme includes the cat and mouse tactics of Match Sprinting, the tension and explosive racing of the Keirin and the intrigue of Pursuit battles. Alongside this the programme will include Scotland’s first Paracycling Tandem racing since the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Star of the show is Milngavie’s very own Katie Archibald, the current world, European & national omnium champion, not to mention a gold medallist at the 2016 Rio Olympics where as part of the GB women’s team pursuit she set a new world record. Archibald, Scotland first ever female World and Olympic cycling champion, said:
“I’m really excited to race the Glasgow Sprint Grand Prix! The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome always manages to whip up an amazing atmosphere and it promises to be a great day out for all the family. I hope people can come out and support Scotland’s next generation of cyclists!”
As well as providing top-level racing for some of the world’s best riders, the Glasgow Sprint Grand Prix will help to ensure the legacy of Glasgow 2014. As well as the track racing in the velodrome there will be Wattbike testing in the stands in conjunction with Scottish Cycling, allowing spectators to compare themselves against the international stars on the track. All of which will make for a great family day out in the surroundings of the iconic Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome. So what are you waiting for? Book your tickets now!
