First U.S. track World's in 19 years

The United States will host the UCI Track Cycling World Championships for only the third time in the sport's more than 100-year history and for the first time since 1986. The event will be held at the ADT Event Center March 24-27, 2005 just outside of Los Angeles in Carson, California, where 200 of the world's top riders will compete, including many 2004 Olympic Gold Medalists and seven members of the 2004 U.S. Olympic Cycling Team.

Hosting of the UCI Track Cycling World Championships is extremely competitive, with many of the world's top cycling nations bidding on the event years in advance. In 1986 at the 7-Eleven Velodrome in Colorado Springs, the UCI commended the organizing committee for a flawlessly run event. In 2005, the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) and USA Cycling are aiming to exceed expectations. The newly constructed ADT Event Center velodrome, designed by Ralph Schürmann, could aid in the setting of new world records.
