With over 300 cycling and triathlon brands on show, special guests and speakers from across cycling and triathlon, and tons of demos and activities to take part in, this incredible event is definitely not to be missed.
All about the bikes
As you’d expect, there will be hundreds of new bikes on display (many of which will be available for demo rides) from Argon, Cannondale, Canyon, Cervélo, Focus, GoCycle, GT, Marin, Orange, Orro, Ridgeback, Vitus and loads more.
Making an appearance for the first time in the UK will be Alejandro Valverde’s World Championship winning Canyon CF SLX, as well as cutting-edge retail road bikes including Cannondale’s SystemSix Hi-Mod Red eTap AXS and Focus’ award winning Izalco Max Disc 9.9.
Highlights on the off-road side that you’ll be able to inspect are the all-new and highly innovative Marin Mount Vision, GT’s downhill Fury Team 29er and Calibre’s forthcoming enduro bike, the £2,000 Sentry, which is on display to the public for the first time.
Pro riders, celebrities, coaches and more
A wide range of athletes, coaches, experts and personalities will be appearing across three different stages during the show.
Take part in Q&A sessions with all kinds of special guests at the Subaru Performance Theatre, with a diverse line-up that includes the Brownlee brothers, Matt Pritchard, Rachel, Gee and Dan Atherton, plus many more.
Head to the 220 Triathlon Experts Stage for talks from many of the world’s best coaches, nutritionists and elite athletes. Here you can catch sessions with Joe Beer, Swim Smooth, Yiannis Christodoulou, Mark Kleanthous and many others.
The Casquette Live stage is a unique ‘show within a show’, dedicated the very best in women’s cycling. Here you can take part in practical ‘how to’ sessions covering everything from yoga for cyclists to track riding like an Olympic champ. You’ll also be able to enjoy talks with inspirational speakers, pro riders and expert panellists.
Get riding or just watch the action
If you’re looking to get on two wheels yourself while at the show, there’s plenty of opportunities to do just that with hundreds of bikes available to take on demo rides around the dedicated test track.
Younger riders have their own dedicated riding and skills practice area too in the form of the Hope Academy Kids’ Test Track. Here children can try everything from balance bikes to 26in wheeled bikes and take on obstacles such as see-saws, raised planks and small drops — with Hope Academy staff on hand to assist if needed.
If you want to step it up a few notches, there’s also the Fasttraxx pump track to try out. This modular track consisting of humps and berms is designed to be ridden without pedalling. For the uninitiated, Fasttraxx team riders will be alongside to help with advice as you ride. Though, if you’d rather sit back and simply watch the proceedings, three sets of races will take place on the pump track each day.
Arguably, the biggest spectacle at the show will be the Extreme Bike Battle. Featuring a fusion of BMX and MTB riding, here you’ll be able to witness all kinds of aerial stunts, flatland tricks and loads more radical action. As well as watching the pros, you’ll also have the opportunity to get involved yourself during the many skills sessions running each day.
