The 2009 UCI Track Cycling World Championships are the World Championship for track cycling. They took place at the BGŻ Arena in Pruszków, Poland from 25 to 29 March 2009. Nineteen events were on the programme, with the women's omnium being added to the eighteen events contested at the 2008 championships.

Great Britain failed to live up to expectations following their outstanding performances in the 2008 championships, and the Beijing Olympics bringing home only two gold medals out of a total of nine medals, though they were missing both three time Olympic gold medal winning sprinter Chris Hoy and two time Olympic gold medal winning pursuiter Bradley Wiggins. Australia topped the medal table with four gold medals. Traditionally Great Britain uses the World Championships that follow the Olympics as a nurturing ground for young talent.

In the Men's events, Michael Mørkøv and Alex Rasmussen, both of Denmark, and Grégory Baugé of France took home two gold medals while Australian Cameron Meyer took home a gold and two silver medals. For the women both Victoria Pendleton and Elizabeth Armitstead of Great Britain won three medals in three events; a gold, a silver, and a bronze with Simona Krupeckaitė of Lithuania also winning three medals; a gold and two bronzes.
