Ride one of the Tour of Britain’s fastest descents with Sean Kelly

Virtual reality riding experience with Irish cycling legend

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be Sean Kelly’s stem? Well there’s no need to imagine any longer as Chain Reaction Cycles has released this nifty 360° interactive video, which takes us down a rather spicy looking descent piloted by the legendary ‘King Kelly’.

The 3.6km descent between Bala and Llangynog in Wales will feature as the finish of stage 4 of this year's Tour of Britain, the longest stage of the event.

Reaching speeds of 80km/h and taking corners with the confidence that only a hugely experienced rider can, Sean Kelly talks us through the descent with a slightly alarming air of calm that we would struggle to maintain given the pace he is riding.

Such a high speed finish is bound to make for some really exciting racing and we’re looking forward to following this year’s event.
