Mark Cavendish will return to action on the track at the beginning of next month.
The Manx Missile will compete at the International Belgian Open and will start in the scratch race and the madison alongside Owain Doull.
The event on the 6th and 7th September carries UCI World Cup qualifying points.
Under new criteria, riders must qualify themselves to be eligible for World Cup rounds, the World Championships and Olympic selection.
Whilst working as a BBC pundit at the London Olympics, Cavendish did hint at a return to the velodrome ahead of the next games in Rio.
