The first European Masters Track Cycling Championships will go ahead as planned at Manchester Velodrome between Monday, July 28, and Saturday, August 2. Uncertainty surrounded the future of the championships following the sad and untimely death of organiser Brian Cossavella, but after discussion with many of the long time World Masters Championships officials, Martin Bridgwood will move over from Technical Manager to promote the championships as Cossavella and he had been planning.
Riders and officials have shown overwhelming support for continuing on with the championships as a tribute to Cossavella. The championships are expected to be run along the lines of the World Masters that were promoted at Manchester for 12 years and will also include a scratch race finale on the last day of competition in honour of Cossavella.
More information will be posted soon on www.cyclingmasters.com.
