“Stripes will be earned, world titles will be won…” The slogan of the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships is especially apt as the event takes place ahead of this summer’s Olympics. British hopefuls Jason Kenny and Philip Hindes are among those making their case for Rio.

Passenger Shed, Bristol 

Any of the 20,000 fans who witnessed the inimitable David Rodigan and his Rebel Sound crew take down competition including A$AP Rocky at 2014’s Red Bull Culture Clash won’t be forgetting it in a hurry.

Dublin city centre, Dublin
