The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI)  has announced that Hong Kong will host the 2017 UCI Track Cycling World Championships. The announcement is made while the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships is currently taking place at the 6,000 seat velodrome in London’s Lee Valley VeloPark. A flag handover ceremony between Great Britain and Hong Kong will take place immediately following the final race tomorrow, where the UCI flag will pass from the current to the new hosts. The 2017 UCI Track Cycling World Championships will take place April 12-16 at the Hong Kong Velodrome, and will be just the second time in track cycling’s history that Asia has hosted the event following Maebashi, Japan in 1990. Hong Kong successfully hosted a round of the 2015/2016 UCI Track Cycling World Cup in January of this year.
