Just over a week to go until the The Prudential Ride London Youths BMX Grand Prix at Lee Valley VeloPark on Friday 29 July.
The racing is open to riders of all abilities and will be held on the site of the Olympic BMX track with events for boys and girls in four age groups: Under 8s, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14.
There will be live commentary on the racing, a full start gantry, racing action shown on the big screen and a Festival Zone starring the legendary Danny MacAskill and his D…rop and Roll tour in addition to a wide range of other activities.
It’s all part of the first day of Prudential RideLondon, the world’s greatest festival of cycling, and the Friday programme at Lee Valley also includes races for handcyclists and youths on the Lee Valley VeloPark Road Circuit.
There will be a massive selection of prizes for the first four boys and girls in each of the four age groups in addition to prizes for the top three clubs overall.
Entry for competitors and spectators is free.

MTB 3 Skills results 16 April 2016
All other groups, including BMX & Road are welcome to have a go at some of these as well. Riders, ask your coach to have a go and see how your times compare. Who will be the fastest rider in the club?
I am very pleased to now fully share the details of all the races planned in, for the 3 clusters viable this year in Kent Surrey & Sussex.
I have created a Go-Ride Racing Leagues page on the Regional Website, which will allow us to promote and coordinate details of races, and publish results (there will be separate Cluster pages for each).
I will shortly be sharing this with all the other Go-Ride Clubs via Mailchimp, and will be asking them to promote to riders new to racing to help fill up the events.
I am now going to start planning the Regional Go-Ride Racing Final, which is on the 8th OCTOBER (date change) at Cyclopark. Please save the new date. In a change from the original concept, I would like to now invite all promoting GRR Cluster clubs to enter a team (riders from clubs not promoting will not be eligible to ride). More details to follow soon.
