The race for the rainbow jersey
The first Track Cycling World Championships was staged by the International Cycling Association (ICA) in Chicago in 1893 before the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) took over in 1900. For the first 100 years of the event, amateurs and professionals used to compete separately in various disciples and distances including the keirin, points race, team sprint, time trial, omnium, Madison, sprint, scratch race and individual and team pursuit. But since 1993, competitors of any standard all cycle in the same open race. Each event winner receives a rainbow jersey, which they then wear in their respective event for the next 12 months, as well as a gold medal, with second and third-placed competitors picking up a silver and bronze. The UCI Track Cycling World Championships typically takes place across five days each Spring and has visited various countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australasia, for example Poland's BGŻ Arena was announced as the venue for 2019, while Berlin's Velodrom and Turkmenistan's Ashgabat Velodrome were selected as hosts for the following two years.

The French reign supreme
France has been the dominant nation at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships, having amassed a total of 375 medals, including 141, between the inaugural 1893 event and 2018. It's a tally that stands at over 100 medals more than their nearest competitors, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Australia. Other countries with over a century of medals to their name include Italy, Germany, Belgium, United States, Switzerland, and the Soviet Union. However, it was hosts the Netherlands who proved to be the most successful nation at the 2018 Championships at the Omnisport Apeldoorn with five golds, five silvers and two bronzes in total.
