Proud to be supporting cycling at all levels we will be on tour this year with a Cycle Chilterns team of pro-riders at each round of the new StreetVelodrome series with a special 50% entry discount for CTC members.
StreetVelodrome is the new and unique cycle sport event to be held in the UK. Within hours any high street or public space is turned into a heart pounding, action packed, theatre of track style cycle sport, offering a new level of spectator involvement and creating a completely new competition for both professional and amateur riders.
With guest celebrity and professional riders, plus two specially designed progressively banked curve sections placed 35 metres apart, the StreetVelodrome track is lined with cheering spectators. Add in a live race presentation team, DJ set, live timing and you’re ready to make your street the velodrome.
With the UK’s leading television broadcast package for domestic cycle sport the StreetVelodrome Series will tour across the UK bringing the action straight to the fans. Four teams will compete in six rounds to find out who will be the 2014 StreetVelodrome Pursuit Racing Champions.
Making the event accessible and relevant to the communities it visits, StreetVelodrome will be delivering a robust programme of youth engagement aimed at 14 to 25 year olds and supported by UKYouth and UK Anti Doping’s education initiative ‘100% Me’.
HOW IT WORKS
Each team is made up of pre-selected pro-riders, one male and one female, and two amateur riders. Qualifying sessions for the amateur riders will take place on the morning of the event with the fastest eight riders being selected to ride for one of the pro teams and represent them in the televised race. Making this a truly unique opportunity for amateur riders to make their mark on cycling.
