Manager Wayne Greenhalgh. "Streetvelodrome is a fantastic idea and we wanted to be part of it as soon as I heard about it. It gives any person the chance to beat the pro's, it's great for the crowds, TV, and you never know we might find the next Rui Costa!"
Club Roost is the UK's newest Cycling brand. With Elite and amateurs riders from different disciplines the team develops the new products through racing and recreational riding.
Owner Peter Smith says "Streetvelodrome is an awesome concept and just what cycling needs. Not everyone can compete at elite level but this does give the chance for amateurs and novices to see just how close they can get to the pro's and who knows they may beat them!"

'Our riders are looking forward to racing the road and track pro's, we think our BMX style is perfect for StreetVelodrome especially the banked corners which are just like a BMX track. Streetvelodrome is an awesome concept and I'm sure it's going to be massive! I'll also be looking to spot some new talent in the amateurs who show natural untapped ability." Neil Anyon GHP UK
