Some of the biggest names in cycling will be turning out at the first ever iceBike* public weekend at Arena:MK on Saturday 27 February and Sunday 28 February.
Throwing its doors open to the public, free of charge, iceBike* 2016 will be welcoming a host of special guests to the show to give visitors a chance to meet some of their heroes from across the cycling world. Attendees will be able to meet and greet the likes of Shanaze Reade, Manon Carpenter, Blake Samson and Marc Beaumont. A mystery Team Sky rider whose name will be revealed closer to the show will also be attending.
Not only this, but Saturday will see the launch of the Madison Genesis team and the Pearl Izumi Tour Series, both of which will be hosted by popular cycling personality and ITV presenter, Ned Boulting. The Madison Genesis Team launch will feature the new-look team in its first official public appearance ahead of the 2016 season, as well as showing off the Genesis Zero team bike and fresh team kit. Dave Povall will also be making his first public appearance since being announced as team co-manager earlier this week.
