The Brompton World Championship is back!
We are excited to announce that Prudential RideLondon cycling festival will again be hosting the Brompton World Championship Final in central London on Saturday 29 July.
The iconic race course covers 8 laps around St James’ Park, past Buckingham Palace and down The Mall. Competitors start the race with a Le Mans-style dash, unfolding their bikes before taking on the 16km circuit. The fastest person to complete the race then ends the race.
The dress code is city-chic with lycra sportswear most definitely not permitted.
The ballot for entry is now closed, good luck to all those who applied.
The 2016 final was the best yet with riders from 34 countries travelling to London to participate. It was a star-studded line up including retired British Cyclists David Millar and Michael Hutchinson, Paralympic cyclist Tom Staniford as well as a team of BBC journalists! We also had the national champions from 12 BWC Final qualifying events.
Two-time Brompton World Champion Mark Emsley stormed to a third victory in 00:25:54 while the women’s reigning champ Isabel Hastie also defended her title in an exciting photo finish with a time of 00:28:09.
We look forward to seeing you on The Mall in July.
