London's Lee Valley VeloPark will host the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in December.

British Cycling has confirmed that the second round of the 2014-15 World Cup series would be held in the velodrome from December 5-7, bringing the Great Britain team back to the building where they won nine medals in the 2012 Olympics.

British Cycling's cycle sport and membership director Jonny Clay said: "We are delighted that the UCI has awarded an event in its World Cup series to the UK once again, recognising our continued commitment to the sport and world-renowned standard of event delivery.

"We look forward to seeing Great Britain's athletes return to London and a venue that will hold special memories for many of our cyclists after the phenomenal success they achieved at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

"For our emerging athletes, we hope that their first World Cup at the Lee Valley VeloPark will prove to be the start of a successful journey towards the Rio 2016 Olympic Games."

Last year it was announced the venue will host the 2016 Track World Championships.
