A FAST and exciting new cycling event is coming to Worthing this summer.

The town has been selected as one of six locations in the UK to host the Street Velodrome Series – a pop-up racing competition for professional and amateur riders.

Action from the event will be broadcast across 180 countries by the likes of Sky, Channel 4 and Eurosport.

Professional cyclist Peter Mitchell, from Upper Beeding, has backed the series’ debut in Worthing to be a big success.

He said: “I know a few riders who have done them. I have heard they are really good fun. Having seen it, it looks incredibly exciting, challenging and dramatic.”
