SportPursuit and StreetVelodrome hit the streets of Stevenage!


Last Sunday marked the first round of the SportPursuit StreetVelodrome Series. For a day, the streets of Sunny Stevenage were transformed into a pop-up velodrome where both pros and amateurs tested their cycling skills (and their nerves) as they raced around the track.

Team SportPursuit were amongst the roves of cheering fans surrounding the (100% visibility) track and got some great shots of the day’s action.

Check out pictures from the day as well as some of the velodrome buzz from Twitter below!
