    Masters World Championships 2017?

    Hello All:
    Anyone happen to know where Masters World Track Cycling Championships will be held in 2017? My searches turned up the fact that the Manchester contract only went through 2016 and that the 2017 Masters World Games (which includes cycling but is not the UCI Worlds) will be held in Cambridge NZ. Unless perhaps World Games replaces World Championships every 4th year?
    Thanks,
    Jim

    World Masters Games - participate in Auckland New Zealand - 2017 This is the "Masters Games" movement - which is the international "social / have fun" games movement. Track cycling will be in Cambridge (my home town) at the Avantidrome http://www.avantidrome.co.nz/

    But this is quite different to the UCI Masters World Track Cycling Champs ..

    Will cyclists from the USA be required to buy an international license for these 2017/2018 championships?

    I believe so. It's still an international event held under an international license.

    I had to get an International UCI licence to race the World Track Masters even though it was held in Sydney.

    I will likely be living in Japan and riding under a Japanese license by then. Anyone know if I can ride as a Japanese rider or will I have to pay for a US license and ride US? US citizen, will be under either Japanese spouse visa or work visa.

    Interesting question. I would think it would align with citizenship? Probably best to contact USAC now, as it may take them a while to give you a definite answer.

    I believe that it is the citizenship that matters. I know guys that live in the US but have foreign citizenship. They ride at Worlds for their country, not the US.

    Wouldn't the UCI be the ones to ask about this? Seems like different federations have different rules regarding this stuff. For example, I was permitted to ride in nationals when I lived in Japan just because I was licensed by their national federation (JCF), but I know USAC doesn't permit non-citizens to do the same in the US.
