Lee Valley VeloPark Sessions

April 7, 2014 | By | One Comment

We, London team, got lucky to have had 2 track sessions at Lee Valley VeloPark this weekend. Still early stages and booking a session is not as easy as any other velodrome. Because The 5th Floor is in the South East region we were one of the first clubs to have first dibs for a track session on Saturday. Plus we were there again on Sunday to do the needed 1st out of 4 stage of accreditation to race and train there. It was great to have Leo back on the saddle after his crash. Looking forward to more events there. Next one, only in 2 weeks time is The Good Friday Meeting.

Revolution Series – Round 5 – London

March 27, 2014 | By | One Comment

I am a not a photographer and don’t call myself one, but I took some photos of the last round of 2013/2014 Revolution Series. There were a lot of professional photographers taking proper shots of the races so I decided to focus on what happens in the track centre. Click read more below for the full set.

Revolutions Series’ last round was held at the 2012 Olympic Velodrome, Lee Valley VeloPark. It was great to see the venue full again after the Olympics. The atmosphere was awesome, the vibe was great and the crowd were cheering pretty much everyone, mainly British riders, but when foreign riders were doing well, they cheered them on too. There were from World Champions and Olympic riders to up coming young stars, a good mix of races to watch. Make sure you don’t miss out on the next Revolution Series, there are plenty of races to keep you entertained. Another top event by Face Partnership.
- Rudy Melo.

HOY: Media Launch

December 3, 2013 | By | No Comments

Saturday November 30th saw the 2nd round of the revolution series to come to my hometown of Glasgow. We were lucky enough to be invited along by Evans Cycles to watch the evenings racing and to have a good look at the new HOY bikes range. Which luckily enough for me meant I got to share 45 minutes on track with Sir Chris himself in order to have a closer look at the Fiorenzuola track bike in action.

Click Read more for the full report of the evening and initial thoughts on the range.
Many thanks to Sir Chris and Evans Cycles for the invite and to Stephen Hughes for the captures.
