Newport's International Velodrome in Wales will host Sprint School 6 Friday, August 31. Throughout the season, Sprint School has been developing tomorrow's sprinters.

60 young cyclists from around the country assembled for Sprint School 5 on August 17. With riders Craig Maclean and Anna Blyth in attendance, the youngsters found it easy to learn and improved considerably while getting tips and advice from the Stars of cycling, as well as the coaches.

Besides serious track training, coaches set up a series of activities focusing on skills and knowledge. Games included bicycle limbo, sumo and collecting pound coins off the floor as well as practical bike maintenance lessons.

The velodrome will also host the "Future Revolution" on October 13 in conjunction with the successful Revolution events at the Manchester Velodrome. The Future Revolution will be focused on Junior racing but will also host an event for Sprint School members, allowing the riders to race in a competitive atmosphere and put into practice all the skills they have learned since February.
