At Round 7 the amateurs will be competing for the right to join Suffolk Saints pro riders John Stockwell and Tanya Griffiths at the finals event being held this year in Green Park, in view of Buckingham Palace as part of the Prudential Ride London weekend.
The Series is closely fought between six regional pro teams, The Suffolk Saints, Team London, Team Cornwall, Belfast Titans, Angels of the North and the South Coast Rollers. Each team will be made up of two pro riders (one male and one female) plus two amateur riders (again one male and one female) who themselves qualify by winning their regional heats.
Together the teams of four will battle it out on SuperFinals day to win gold for their respective regions. The team with the best medal tally at the end of the Series wins.
