The Cycle Show is gearing up to be another great event with two of the biggest names in racing set to appear at the show.
Team KATUSHA Alpecin’s lead sprinter, Marcel Kittel and British rider Alex Dowsett are the first riders announced and they will be wheeling into the show on Saturday September 29 and Sunday 30th September respectively with Canyon Bikes.
Marcel Kittel, one of the fastest sprinters in the world and with 19 Grand Tour stage wins to his name, is one of the most decorated German sprinters of all time and the only German to have worn every jersey at the Tour de France and Giro D’Italia. Alex Dowsett has remained a true time-trial specialist since his formative year in the British Olympic Academy, and went on to win gold at the Commonwealth Games in 2014, and break the hour record in May 2015.
Taking place at the NEC Birmingham between 28th and 30th September, The Cycle Show will be the best place in the country to see, try and buy the latest 2019 bike models from the leading brands. With free test tracks featuring the latest road bikes, MTBs, electric and kids bike, visitors will have the option to ‘try before they buy’ alongside benefiting from special show offers on the most innovative cycling gear, accessories and kit.
Visitors will be able to put their questions to Marcel and Alex when they appear on the Main Stage, and VIP ticket holders will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with both riders in the VIP Lounge for signings and photos.
Marcel Kittel’s and Alex Dowsett’s guest appearances are just one aspect of The Cycle Show this year. There is something for everyone at the show, be it guest speakers on the Main Stage to test tracks and features where you can learn more about the sport Great Britain loves.
For families with kids, there will be two kids tracks to get youngsters riding. One of Europe’s leading bike manufacturer’s Cube have ploughed all their expertise into a range of kids’ bikes to enthrall, delight and build their skills, whatever their age and experience. Kids will be able to try the Kid 200, Kid 240 and Stereo 140 ranges at the show on a purposely built test track.
Islabikes are also providing a full fleet of lightweight, proportionately designed children’s bikes racked up and available to test ride on The Islabikes Kids Track. Experts will be on hand to answer questions and offer advice.
For slightly higher-octane actions, the Extreme Bike Battle will provide a chance to see adrenaline fuelled, jaw-dropping stunts from across the BMX and MTB world - with the UK’s #1 BMX ranked rider Lee Musselwhite on hand to show kids how to master the BMX.
Elsewhere, the ebike zone will showcase the latest brands shaping the future of electric bikes and for those new to the cycling world, New2Cycling Hub in partnership with free2cycle will provide all the help, advice and know-how you need to increase confidence and enjoyment of cycling. Free to use, with regular demos, talks and advice throughout all three days, the New2Cycling Hub will be the perfect place to learn more about cycling, or start your journey into the world of cycling.
The show is a great day out for the cycling fans. Whether you are a pro, a newbie or somewhere in-between.
