The Dutch city of Apeldoorn will host the 2024 edition of the Elite Track European Championships from 14 to 18 February.
Confirmation of the dates were made at the extraordinary meeting of the Union Européenne de Cyclisme Management Board, which took place virtually with all members.
Approximately 250 athletes from 30 countries will compete in the six-day continental event to fight for the 22 titles at stake, 11 for each category.
Enrico Della Casa, President of the Union Européenne de Cyclisme: «The Elite Track European Championships have always been one of the most important and attractive events and they will be even more so in February 2024, in view of how close they are to the Paris Olympic Games which will begin five months later.
The growing media interest in Track cycling and the great passion of the Dutch public are without doubt two major highlights of this event. For about a week, European cycling will meet in a symbolic venue of world cycling, and not just for Track: the Omnisport modern venue which over the last few years has hosted prestigious Track calendar events including the Elite and Para-cycling World Championships, European Championship three times, an edition of the Juniors and Under 23 continental event, as well as the impressive start of the 2016 Giro d’Italia.
I wish to thank the Dutch Cycling Federation, its President Wouter Bos, the city of Apeldoorn, its Mayor Ton Heerts, the Province of Gelderland, its Deputy Jan Markink, the Ministry of Public Health, Welfare and Sport, and above all the organisers Libéma Profcycling, our historic partners in the organisation of major events in the Netherlands».
