SHANAZE READE HELPS LAUNCH THE 2017 KIDS SERIES
TeamGB ace Shanaze Reade got involved in the action at the 2017 Kids Series launch event.
30 super quick kids aged 3 to 14 took part in the Sharks v Tigers and NexGen Series competitions.
The event took place at the London Bike Show, the first event in a busy year for StreetVelodrome.
Shanaze has joined the StreetVelodrome team as a Pro rider for 2017 and an ambassador of our Kids Series, helping to inspire the nation's young people into cycle sport.
There are two competitions which make up the Kids Series. The Sharks v Tigers for 3 to 11 year olds and the NexGen Series for 12 to 16 year olds.
In the Sharks v Tigers the Sharks took the victory by winning the most races. But every competitor did an amazing job of getting to grips with the challenging steep banked turns of the StreetVelodrome.
THE SHARKS TAKE THE FIRST WIN OF 2017
The NexGen Series competition saw a great battle between three really quick individuals. The competition was won by 12 year old Ethan Cuerden (white tshirt) with last years SuperFinal champion Ben Flatau (blue helmet) in second and Alex True (blue tshirt) in third.
