Last week we were at ExCeL for a morning of testing ahead of the UK’s first indoor criterium, the IG London Nocturne which will be taking place alongside The London Bike Show in January.
We were sampling a treatment, a mixture of fine sand and chemicals which can be added to surfaces to create friction and in our case make high speed cornering much safer for riders.
The treatment offered exactly what we were looking for and will be added to the heavy breaking areas and corners of the circuit. We’re very happy with the surface in ExCeL which will form the rest of the track and the foundations for some fast and exciting racing.
Plenty of riders have already registered for the racing and you can still sign up – click here for more information. It promises to be a great 4 days of racing for both participants and spectators.
