We’re rather excited to be a part of this cool, new UK event. StreetVelodrome is the the ONLY pop-up track cycling cycle event in the WORLD!
Starting in Stevenage this Sunday, StreetVelodrome will be bringing their pop-up racing series to six different towns and cities over the next 2 months and SportPursuit are going to be there every step (revolution?) of the way.
What to expect in Round 1 on Sunday
On Sunday 8th June, there will be a new addition to the streets of Stevenage – a pop-up velodrome equipped with banked corner units, safety barriers and start line gantry. The crowds will be cheering, the sun will (hopefully) be shining and cyclists will be racing.
Teams consisting of both pros and amateurs will be pushing themselves to the limit in 60 second sprints around the track. Riders will race in preliminary rounds to secure spots in the finals. Pro cyclists that have signed up so far include French international Alexandre Blain and pro freestyle BMX rider Keelan Phillips.
To keep the playing field even, all racers will be riding on steel framed, single speed Mango Bikes equipped with brakes and dropped handlebars. As much as we love a bit of fancy cycling kit at SportPursuit, this event is not about the bike or the bib shorts. It’s all about fun, healthy competition and the glory – of the streets!
