Limited tickets are now on sale for the chance to be part of an exclusive live studio audience at the 2023 UCI Cycling Esports World Championships 'In Real Life' Final on Saturday 18 February at The Engine Works, Glasgow. 

Kicking off from 4.30pm (doors open) with racing due to start from 6pm, audience members will have the chance to watch ten British Cycling athletes (5 men/ 5 women) take part in the 2023 UCI Cycling Esports World Championships, bridging the gap between the real-world physical efforts of the riders and the virtual race.

The 2023 UCI Cycling Esports World Championships will take place on an all-new Scotland map - the first time a virtual destination has been created specifically for a cycling esports competition and will consist of three short and explosive events: The Punch, The Climb and The Podium.  

The new Scotland world takes inspiration from the Scottish landscape and the city of Glasgow, which alongside other venues across Scotland will play host to the inaugural UCI Cycling World Championships in August this year.

The UCI Cycling Esports World Championships are the perfect kick-off to a big year for Glasgow, and Scotland, which will host the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships from 3 to 13 August.
