About the UCI Track Champions League
21 October – 11 November 2023
With five rounds in four cities, track cyclists from across the globe are competing in a three-week race league.
Riders compete in either the endurance or sprint categories, in women’s and men’s divisions, and score points across all five rounds. Points then accrue in a league table and the overall winners will be the riders with the most points at the end of the series.
