Chiltern Cycling Festival to hold Baby Keirin Championships
Under fives to race around track behind Big Motors in first event of its kind this July
Huge crowds are expected to witness the high speed action as toddlers get their chance to tear around behind the big motors on the Baby Velodrome as part of 'The Chiltern Cycling Festival'. Under fives will be given their very own chance to fight it out at high speed in a classic Derny Dual event on July 13.
Based on the Baby Velodrome circuit, kids on balance bikes and trikes will be towed up to approx 42mph behind the derny pacer, before it swings off leaving them to sprint for glory.

Sure to be a crowd pleaser on the day, the organisers are joining forces with William Hill who will be offering trackside odds on all entrants.
"We are delighted to be involved in such a marvellous event," said organiser Nat Rizzi, "and I think that despite the obvious dangers of mixing toddlers, motorcycles and gambling - we could have a concept that appeals to the general public and helps prevent today's children going soft."
