Hoy to ride 2012 Olympic velodrome on Tuesday

Sir Chris Hoy, Manchester Track Cycling World Cup 2009

Sir Chris Hoy will ride around London's Olympic velodrome on Tuesday (July 27) to mark the two-year countdown until the start of the 2012 Olympic Games in the British capital.

With no wooden track yet in place, quadruple Olympic champion Hoy will ride around the inner part of the Olympic velodrome in London's east end. It will be a symbolic gesture rather than a serious race-pace ride.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
