SERIES NEWS: NEW REGIONAL PRO TEAMS ANNOUNCED
The UK StreetVelodrome Series continues to grow as it now enters into its third season. New for 2016 will be the introduction of regional Pro Teams.
REGIONAL PRO TEAMS
The six regional Pro Teams are especially formed to compete in the UK StreetVelodrome Series and to represent the cities and regions the Series will be visiting in 2016. So each team will have it's own 'home' event and the benefit of their local fan support. The teams are:
Team Cornwall - Home Event Round 1 Eden Project, Cornwall
Team London - Home Event Round 2 Hillingdon
Belfast Titans - Home Events Round 3 Belfast & Round 4 Ballyclare
Angels of the North - Home Event Round 5 Stockton on Tees
South Coast Rollers - Home Event Round 6 Worthing
Suffolk Saints - Home Event Round 7 Bury St Edmunds
Each team will be made up of one pro / elite male and one pro / elite female. To compete in the Pro category the riders must have competed at an elite level (in any form of cycle sport). Riders from traditional forms of cycle sport are invited such as those from track, BMX, Cyclocross, Mountain bike and road racing as well as those from freestyle bmx and other action sports too.
Both the male and female Pro riders for each team will contest regional rounds and the SuperFinals of the Series, looking to bag those all important Gold, Silver or Bronze medals for their team.
The Pro Team at the end of the SuperFinals with the best medal tally will win the Series outright.
The Pro Rider line ups for each team will be announced soon.
The first round of the Series will be on 8th May at Eden Project in Cornwall. For more news about the UK StreetVelodrome Series visit www.streetvelodrome.co.uk or like our Facebook page and get the latest news on events, races and results.
