#EUROTRACK24 JUNIORS & UNDER 23, COTTBUS (GER) IS READY

With the 2024 season in full swing, the Union Européenne de Cyclisme is gearing up for six days of great cycling with the 2024 UEC Track Juniors/U23 European Championships to be held at the Lausitz Velodrom in Cottbus (Germany) from 9 to 14 July.

A total of 425 athletes from 29 countries are entered for the continental event, which will award a total of 44 titles.

Enrico Della Casa, President of the Union Européenne de Cyclisme: "The Championships, which will be held at the historic Cottbus velodrome, which has already hosted European Championships in the past, represent a particularly important moment for the European cycling movement, precisely because this is an event of international scope reserved for the youth categories, and the German public, which is passionate and competent, will have the opportunity to witness races of a high technical level. We shouldn't forget that the Track European Championships for Juniors and Under-23s have always been the launch pad for a number of athletes who have gone on to win world and Olympic titles in the course of their careers.

Germany has a long and glorious tradition in Track cycling, always at the forefront and innovating in our sport, and this event confirms once again the importance of investing in young talent to have great champions in the future, but above all it is a demonstration of how the sport can be promoted through a sporting event of this magnitude, particularly among the youngest.

I would like to express my deep gratitude to the organising committee, led by Axel Viertler with the tireless Detlef Uibel, to the sponsors, to the German Cycling Federation, which, with its President Rudolf Scharping, has supported these Championships with the same passion it has always had for our sport, and to all the volunteers who have made this event possible. Without their commitment and support, none of this would be possible."

In 2023, Italy won a total of 22 medals at the Juniors and Under 23 European Track Championships: 14 gold, 5 silver and 3 bronze, ahead of Great Britain (9, 8 and 6) and Germany (9, 2 and 8).
