Dublin Track Cycling International puts track heavyweights centre-stage
This weekend, the Dublin Track Cycling International will build on the momentum of an eventful national road and TT championships by putting domestic and international track stars in the limelight.

The full start list available to view here.

Race schedule can be viewed here for both days.

The UCI event, which runs over two days (Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July) at Dublin's Sundrive Velodrome, brings together the elite of Irish men's and women's track cycling and pits them against a selection of the world's finest. It's a stiff but very welcome test for proven local riders like Mark Downey, Felix English, Lydia Gurley, Lydia Boylan and recently crowned national road race champion Alice Sharpe, all of whom have the credentials to compete with - and beat - world-class opposition from abroad.


A full programme of men’s and women’s events will take place over the course of the weekend, with Olympic medallists Jason Kenny and Lasse Norman Hansen, as well as 2018 team pursuit world champion Ethan Hayter, the visiting riders who may attract most attention in the men's field. Competing for honours with the Irish women will be stellar names such as former European scratch and points champion Trine Schmidt, 2016 road race world champion Amalie Dideriksen and world team sprint bronze-winner Victoria Williamson.


On what looks like being a sunny weekend in Dublin, spectators and supporters are invited to drop by Sundrive and catch these giants of track cycling doing their thing in what will be one of the best track events held in the UK and Ireland this year. It's a wonderful and accessible opportunity for Irish fans to see some stars of the velodrome up close and personal.


The action kicks off with the junior men’s Scratch race at 9.45am on Saturday, with the final event of the day, the women’s Scratch race, starting at 3.47pm. Day 1’s highlights include the Points races (women 1pm, men 2.44pm) and the Keirin finals (men 3.29pm, women 3.47pm).


Day 2, Sunday, sees the Omnium and the Sprint competition come to the fore, with the first of the Omnium races at 10.20am (men) and 10.51am (women) and the last of their 4 races at 3.41pm and 4.36pm respectively. The Sprint events start at 9.30am and the first of the finals will be at 3.29pm (men) and 3.37pm (women).
