Charlie Tanfield will open his World Championship campaign in Apeldoorn on Wednesday.
The Canyon Eisberg talent is part of Great Britain’s team pursuit squad who will take to the track in Holland during the first day of the event.
After qualifying takes place in the afternoon session from 1pm GMT, the first round is scheduled for the evening (from 5.30pm).
The gold medal will be decided on Thursday evening, with the session once again beginning at 5.30pm.
Tanfield, who rides on the track for Team KGF, will then target the rainbow jersey in the individual pursuit competition on Friday.
The qualifying rounds (from 12.30pm) and finals (from 5.30pm) will both take place on the same day.
British champion and fourth fastest in the world ever, the Great Ayton rider will be one of the pre-race favourites.
Tanfield clinched the national title in Manchester last month. That came in the slipstream of a gold medal at the Track World Cup in Minsk.
That Belarus triumph came in a personal best time of 4min 12.253sec for the 4km discpline. Only three riders have ever gone quicker.
Aussie Jack Bobridge holds the world record 4:10.534, while Chris Boardman adopted the now-banned Superman technique for his top time of 4:11.114.
Jordan Kerby, also of Australia, is the only other man to ever go quicker than Tanfield after he stopped the clock in 4:12.172 in Hong Kong last April.
