The 2011 UCI Track Cycling World Championships takes place at the brand new Omnisport Centrum Velodrome in Apeldoorn, Netherlands from the 23rd to the 27th of March 2011.

Just over a year before 2012 London Olympics the world's finest Track Cyclists are building their form towards the event we Apeldoorn expected to herald the first glimpses of potential Olympic Champions.

With the British still some way off Olympic mode, it is expected Australia will continue to dominate with the French, Germans and of course Dutch all hoping to win multiple Golds. As always Velodrome.org.uk will be there to provide you with the usual array of in-depth coverage of the event so stay tuned for one of the most eagerly anticipated World Championships in recent years.

Designed by Faulkner Brown the Omnisport project contains not only a Velodrome, but also an indoor athletics track and volleyball courts. The track will house both the KNWU (Dutch Cycling Federation) and their academy riders as well as the National Athletics squad.

Based in Apeldoorn the city offers multicultural life and is home to museums of national repute such as the National Museum, royal palace Het Loo and the modern art gallery Coda.

Close by, there is the Kroller-MŁller Museum, with its internationally renowned collection including masterpieces by Vincent van Gogh and Mondriaan, as well as the largest sculpture garden in Europe, housing the works of numerous world-famous sculptors.

The history of the town and its surrounding area are on public display in the Historical Museum in Coda.

Connoisseurs of theatre, music and film are well catered for by the various stages of the Orpheus Theatre, the Huis voor Schoone Kunsten and royal palace Het Loo, a regular venue for chamber concerts. Art expressions like sculptures can also be found in the open air scattered over Apeldoorn. ..........................................................................................................
