STREETVELODROME HELPS CELEBRATE BRITISH CYCLING & HSBC LINK UP
StreetVelodrome was a central attraction at last Sunday's HSBC UK Bikefest in Birmingham's Victoria Square.
The event saw the announcement of British Cycling's new link up with HSBC UK. The partnership is aimed at getting more people cycling so what better way to celebrate than with the World's most accessible cycle sport, StreetVelodrome?
RIO 2016 GOLD MEDAL WINNERS JASON KENNY AND LAURA TROTT WERE THERE TO HELP LAUNCH HSBC UK'S NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH BRITISH CYCLING WITH HSBC CHIEF EXEC ANTONIO SIMOES
The action on track saw an epic battle between the Sharks and the Tigers teams. With the Sharks taking overall victory with 13 points to 10. Medals were awarded to all our little racers.
We also had four of our Pros from the 2016 TV series on hand to help with coaching the general public on track and to set some super fast times in our demonstration races.
Throughout the day we held 18 head to head pro races (9 for the guys and 9 for the girls). Coming out on top was 17 year old Jessica Watts with 6 individual wins, followed by 2016 national champ, Patrick Robinson with 5. Dave Johnson (2015 champ) got 4 and Tanya Griffiths won 3.
It was a fantastic day and a real celebration of all things cycling with hundred's of people keen to get involved.
