The 250-meter velodrome at the VELO Sports Center in Carson, California, will host the premiere event of the World Cycling League tonight at 7:30, and you can watch the racing live right here on Cyclingnews.
Six teams of seven riders each will compete in three sessions over two days, beginning Friday evening. The second session is Saturday afternoon from 1:30 to 4 p.m., with the final session taking place Saturday evening from 7:30 to 10.
Each session will feature 12 races – seven for men and five for women – on the steeply banked wooden velodrome at the VELO Sports Center. Races will be as short as two laps for sprinters and up to 40 laps for endurance riders. Each of the teams will field from one to four riders in each “TeamTrak” race with up to 24 riders on the track at once.
Teams include the California Wave, Colorado Cyclones, Pennsylvania Lightning, Connecticut Nor’Easters, Dublin Thunder and Mexico Heat. The 42-person race roster includes 24 men and 18 women from 11 nations. The WCL is sanctioned as an invitational event to qualified track cyclists by USA Cycling.
