Luke Roberts (CSC) and Brad Wiggins (Cofidis) will be two of the stars at the Good Friday track meeting, to be held at London's Herne Hill velodrome on April 14. The pair will be riding against each other in an individual pursuit, which will be one of the highlights of the meet.
Other events on offer include the SCCU Golden Wheel 20km Scratch Race, which is the richest race of its kind in the country, with a prize fund of £2850 and £1000 going to the winner. Also, national derny paced champion Bryan Taylor will be looking for a win in the BPA Derny Paced Race.
Riders taking part will come from Belgium, Holland, Italy, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Germany, Japan and Australia, and it looks set to be the largest field ever in the history of the meet. The gates open at 10 am with sprint preliminaries starting at 11am. The main meeting starts at 1pm and is scheduled to finish at approximately 6pm. Admission is £6 for children, £12 for adults and a Super Saver Family Ticket is £30.
