New UCI Champions League

UCI announces 2021 Track Champions League

"First announced in March as a World League taking place in 2021 and 2022, the new format will instead be staged over six successive weekends at the end of next year."

The UCI, in partnership with broadcaster Eurosport, hope the Champions League featuring the world's best sprint and endurance riders will help expand track cycling's global TV fanbase outside of its traditional following.

"Each of the six events at as yet unspecified venues will last around two hours and feature four disciplines for men and women -- individual sprint, keirin, elimination race and scratch race".

I preferred the old world cup format that included TTs. I am not optimistic that this format wioll last very long.

What do you guys think about this format

I agree with you. Track racing is like atonalitY in music, itís not for everyone.

Anything to revive track . I miss Kissena Queens on Wednesday nights. Men women teens all abilities having a blast. Road racing bites for spectators sans bmx and cyclocross and a short crit.

Nothing like track for action right up front and in your face ☺️

Whilst it's a shame that there won't be any TTs, that isn't the kind of event that draws in the more casual fans or even non-cycling viewers. They've probably picked the right events to give this a test, we will see if it works.

Let's be honest, even as a cycling fan, I find TTs and pursuits incredibly boring to watch, and they take a long time.

Yeah, but you're not a normal person.

The day I paused the WC TT to try and count how many teeth were on Tony Martin's chainring I realized I was a somewhat sad fellow :D
