Event preview
This years Championships sees a record entry of 329 riders from 23 countries and competition will be fierce to top the medal table as well as the individual honours.
The USA have topped the medals table all but 1 of the 10 years that the Championships have been held - all of which have been in Manchester. Great Britain was the victor then and this year could be their best yet and support for them is essential.
The Masters, the official Championships for riders over 30 years of age and riders are grouped in 5 year age categories with each age competing over 4 individual disciplines (time trial, sprint, pursuit and points race) with the Men also competing in the Team Sprint.

The week ends with the famous Muratti Cup (Saturday 18th evening) which will feature the best riders of the week in the younger age groups over the 10-mile race. Of the three previous winners at the Velodrome only one is missing (Danny Clark the Australian six day king who is injured this year) and Britains Bryan Taylor will want to make it a double but Peter Coulson (USA) the 2002 winner will have different thoughts.

The week is packed with over 60 world Championship events over the 6 days and finals will be 7pm each evening with further final sessions on Monday (13th) afternoon at 1pm and Saturday (18th), when a short session will precede that final session with the big races. (Heats are held every day from Tuesday with free admission to these heats on Tuesday to Friday) Admission is 6 per day (3 under 16's and over 60's).

Your support is needed on this 10th anniversary year of the Championships with many countries wishing to stage the event the organisers are keen to keep it in Britain and that can only be achieved by good spectator support.
Below you will find a short resume of each age group and other details. Many of the riders are unknown quantities and one of the most exicting aspects of Masters racing are relative newcomers who upstage the favourites.
It is thought that the biggest upsets may well come from two teams especially - those of Italy, who send a National Team and Ireland who send their largest ever contingent of 19 riders
