18 January - 21 January, Home Depot Centre, LA, USA

 

More than 400 entries for LA round

More than 400 athletes from over 40 countries, including the United States, have confirmed their participation in the three-day event at The Home Depot Center. Due to the high volume of athletes, additional races and heats may be added, and the event schedule is subject to change. 

Fans, ticket holders and media members are encourage to visit www.homedepotcenter.com or www.usacycling.org early on Friday morning, as the first sessions on both Friday and Saturday may start as early as two hours prior to the ticketed start time.

World Cup races are amongst the most prestigious on the UCI calendar, providing riders and countries the opportunity to qualify for the 2008 Olympic Games in China. After stops in Sydney and Beijing, the Los Angeles event is the third of the four-race World Cup series in the 2007-08 season. Because there is no qualification system for the World Cup series, entries cannot be precisely foreseen. In a year where more than double the amount of athletes is competing as in previous years, additional races and heats may be added to accommodate the record number of participants, which will result in an earlier start time on Friday and Saturday, when qualification events will be held.

Tickets start from as low as $20.00 and all-session ticket packages (includes six sessions over three days) are available from $75. All-event packages and group tickets are on sale now through the AEG Ticket Sales Office by calling 1-877-AEG-TICKETS (1-877-234-8425). Individual tickets are on-sale through The Home Depot Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets including Ticketmaster Charge-by-Phone (213-480-3232 or 714-740-2000) and online at www.ticketmaster.com.
