Next weekend, the British National Track Championships will return to Manchester’s National Cycling Centre for the first time since 2020, and you can watch the best British talent do battle from the comfort of your own home.

World champions Will Tidball, Emma Finucane, Kadeena Cox and Jody Cundy are among a strong line-up of riders from across the country vying for a chance to win the coveted red, white and blue national champions’ jerseys.

Demand for tickets has been higher than ever, with the Saturday evening and Sunday sessions now sold out. However, thanks to the support of British Cycling members, the championships will be live streamed in full through British Cycling’s YouTube channel, starting and approximately ending at the following times:

  • Friday 23 February: 10:45 – 21:50
  • Saturday 24 February: 09:15 – 22:25
  • Sunday 25 February: 08:15 – 18:40

British Cycling’s Interim Sport and Participation Director, Amy Gardner, said: “We are delighted to once again be able to offer full coverage of the British National Track Championships to fans here in Britain and across the world.

“The start list this year is jam-packed with some of our country’s biggest names and brightest talents, including 15 reigning world champions. At the beginning
of a vital Olympic and Paralympic year, it’s brilliant to see these riders supporting our domestic events and showcasing their talents in front of sold-out home crowds in Manchester.

“We’re hugely thankful to Manchester City Council, the National Cycling Centre, our event team and volunteers for supporting us to bring the championships
back to Manchester, and can’t wait to see new national champions crowned on the famous boards next weekend.”

Multiple national champion and para-cyclist, Daphne Schrager, said: “Nationals is such an exciting event because every rider will be raising their game and it will be really hotly contested. I’m so excited just to get race ready again and also to race in Manchester in front of a home crowd. It’s so great that it will be livestreamed and means all of my friends and family can watch from home. It’s a great event and every year it is a real privilege to ride at the National Track Championships.”

A limited number of tickets for the event remain on sale, with prices ranging from £6.50 – £14 per session.
