StreetVelodrome to return to Worthing
Released: Thursday, 23 March 2017
StreetVelodrome is to return to Beach House Grounds, Worthing, on 1st and 2nd July 2017, for a third year of wheel-to-wheel cycle racing action.
2015's and 2016's sun-drenched weekends of cycle racing have set a high bar for the 2017 StreetVelodrome competition. Locally enjoyed and nationally televised, StreetVelodrome remains one of the most thrilling sporting weekends in Worthing's calendar. Transforming Beach House Grounds in a matter of hours into a professional racing circuit, StreetVelodrome offers a perfect opportunity to clip on a helmet and test yourself against amateur and pro-riders alike.
“This is a fantastic family event”
comments Cllr Bryan Turner, Executive Member for Regeneration at Worthing Borough Council.
“It doesn't matter how old you are or how much experience you've got, StreetVelodrome is an open competition designed to bring out the best in every rider.”
“I'm proud that Worthing Borough Council is bringing StreetVelodrome back to the town for a third year, creating another great weekend for tourists and local residents alike.”
The format of 2017's StreetVelodrome competition mirrors the successful set-up from the 2016 year. The South Coast Rollers, Worthing's home team, will be taking to the track again, searching for the best new talent to accompany them to the London finals. All equipment and coaching will be provided, so all you need to do is turn up and ride!
In addition to the Borough Council's investment, the StreetVelodrome competition benefits from the faith of its sponsors. This year, Worthing StreetVelodrome is being brought to the town in association with:
- Chandlers of Worthing
- Lancing College Preparatory School at Worthing
- Southern Railway
- Worthing Homes
This year, the Worthing StreetVelodrome weekend is also welcoming Worthing FC, Worthing RFC, Worthing Thunder, VC Jubilee and Southdown Leisure - all of whom will be offering visitors the chance to learn new skills, get active and revel in the sporting talent that Worthing has to offer.
