The maximum participation per team shall be the following:
Medals will be awarded to the first three places but UCI ranking points will be limited to the maximum allowable entry per nation, e.g. in the 1KM time trial where there are 2 entries allowed per nation, a nation can only score a maximum of points for two riders.
For Para-cycling, each nation will be entitled to have one slot per sport class.
All Nations are encouraged to enter teams for the team pursuit and team sprint events, but entries will be accepted from provincial, sponsored and club teams, with the Nation having first call on their respective riders.
Mass Start events
All mass start events will be limited to 36 starters (20 teams for the Madison). No heats will be held for mass start events. National team entries will have priority in the event of maximum allowable entries being exceeded.
Depending on entries the junior women’s mass start events could be combined with the elite women’s events. In this case only second year juniors will be eligible to score UCI ranking points.
The track competition will take place from 21-25 January 2015 with 25 January being held as a reserve day in case of rain. Although final signoff of the event schedule is pending from the UCI, the provisional schedule including all competitions can be downloaded here.
Each day consists of two sessions:
- A morning session from 09:00 to 13:00
- An afternoon session from 14:00 to 18:00
