One of Glasgow’s most revered sporting venues and a 2014 Commonwealth Games host venue, the Emirates Arena, Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, will come alive with elite sporting competition once more when it stages the Cycling Track European Championships at Glasgow 2018. This world-class venue will give spectators a fascinating view of the action as riders reach speeds of over 40mph as they battle it out for the crown of European Champion.

Former UEC President and now UCI President David Lappartient said, "Over the years, Glaswegians have shown their love of our sport in its many guises. The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome – which, according to top riders, has a very fast wooden track – hosted the opening round of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in November 2016 ... we are sure that all our events will attract wide support and that fans from across Glasgow, Scotland and beyond will come to see some fantastic competition."

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and is internationally recognised as one of Europe's most exciting destinations.
