“I’m proud that Worthing Borough Council is bringing StreetVelodrome back to the town for a third year, creating another great weekend for tourists and local residents alike.”

The format of 2017’s StreetVelodrome competition mirrors the successful set-up from the 2016 year. The South Coast Rollers, Worthing’s home team, will be taking to the track again, searching for the best new talent to accompany them to the London finals.

All equipment and coaching will be provided, so all people need to do is turn up and ride if they want to take part.
