As Championship Director, I am pleased to welcome you, your family and friends to the 2017 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships. The 22nd edition of Masters Worlds will bring together athletes of a wide range of ages and abilities that, coupled with the great sights and tastes of Los Angeles, will help make this competition the most memorable yet! It is an exciting time for us at the VELO Sports Center as we continue to grow and adapt to the growth of the great sport of cycling.
Track cycling is an exciting sport that brings fun-spirited rivalry and exhilarating competition in a unique, no-frills manner. We will continue to strive to inspire people to reach their maximum potential.
I wish each of you all the best while you compete against the best in the world. I hope that you will be able to challenge yourself in competition, reunite with old friends and make lasting memories. Whether you are defending your rainbow jersey from last year, competing for the first time or simply spectating, we encourage you to take a break from the competition and enjoy the sights Los Angeles has to offer.
Good luck in this year's competition!
