Sir Chris Hoy among stars confirmed for London Bike Show

By BikeRadar UK | Wednesday, January 9, 2013 7.00pm

The London Bike Show will be held at the ExCel centre in east London, starting on Thursday 17 January and running through Sunday 20 January.

The four day show is attracting some high profile cycling stars, including Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy, and Paralympic champions Jody Cundy MBE and Mark Colbourne MBE. You'll also be able to witness the launch of the new Madison Genesis road team and watch the IG London Nocturne, the UK's first indoor criterium. There will be races each day including elite men's and women's criteriums, support races, a youth race and folding bike and penny farthing races. If you want more entertainment, then you can see pro stunt riders do their stuff in the Animal Bike Tour.

No bike show would be complete without bikes of course, and you'll be able to browse the current offerings from Sigma racing, Whyte, Cube Bikes, Canyon, Cervelo, Saracen, Hope, Kinesis, Pivot, Go Cycle, Genesis, Ridgeback, Pinarello, Assos, Schwalbe, Marin, Wilier, Brooks, GoPro and more.

If you're looking at bettering your own cycling then check out the Jaguar Performance Theatre, which will feature a number of top coaches and experts who will be looking at how personal performance can be improved through better technique, nutrition and the way cycling is approached, as well as essential bike maintenance and tuning.
