During a UCI evaluation visit from October 3-9, Mark Fulcher, UCI track technical delegate and Gilles Peruzzi, UCI sports coordinator for track, will go to China, at the request of the Chinese Federation, in order to evaluate the new velodromes constructed in Shanghai and Beijing.

These facilities should be granted approval, which will enable them to host international events. Four of the new tracks (Nanjing, Rizhao, Nantong, Tianjin) measure 250m, a new move for China, where the length of tracks is mainly 333.33 metres. The Nanjing velodrome will host the Chinese Games in October, at which young female track talent Guo Shuang has a good chance of winning a medal.
