The UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics will return to the United States from January 20-22 at the ADT Event Center at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The third event of four in the 2005-2006 season will provide riders and countries the opportunity to qualify for positions in the upcoming World Championships April 13-16 in Bordeaux, France.
"The World Cup in Los Angeles is back for a second year and a record number of Americans will be featured," said Gerard Bisceglia, chief executive officer of USA Cycling. "It will be exciting so see so many of our own athletes go head to head against the world's best track cycling athletes on our home soil." More than 200 athletes from 35 countries, including the United States, will participate in the three-day event in California.
