The UCI Cycling World Championships is set to continue across Scotland this week following the excitement of yesterday's men's elite road race flying past the doorsteps of people across central Scotland. 

Over 300,000 lined the streets to catch a glimpse of Sunday's competition as the world’s top cyclists raced from Edinburgh to Glasgow.

The championship was won by Mathieu van der Poel of the Netherlands with a time of six hours, seven minutes and 27 seconds. Coming in the bronze and silver positions were Wout tout Aert of Belgium and Tadej Pogačar of Slovenia. 

The cycling championships will continue for the rest of the week, with more world champions still to be crowned.

Today's events kicked off at 8am with BMX racing events at Glasgow BMX centre. 

The individual time trial in the Gran Fondo race also began at 10am on the roads of Dundee.

Gran Fondo is a mass participation road race event which aims to promote cycling for everyone, not just the professionals. 

Here is a run-down of what is happening over the rest of today.

BMX Freestyle Park Finals - Glasgow Green

The BMX Freestyle Park finals will be taking place this afternoon at Glasgow Green, offering spectators a different experience of the sport than yesterday’s more traditional road race. 

BMX Freestyle is a discipline in which cyclists perform routines centring around tricks and utilising ramps and walls.  

The UCI describes the competition as a race where riders “fly super-hero high off ramps, ride on walls and flip the script of what’s possible on a bike”. 

The men’s elite final will be held at 1pm, followed by the women’s elite final at 4pm. 
Events at Glasgow Green will be topped off with the medal ceremony for both events at 6.40pm. 

The iconic Glasgow park was transformed last week in preparation to host the event, kitted out with the necessary ramps and obstacles.

The women’s para-cycling will then begin at 6pm with the 500m time trial.

The men’s elite track cycling sprint race will take place at 6.55pm. 

In women’s elite racing, the madison will commence at 7.30pm - a race in which teams aim to complete more laps than the others within a time frame.
