Portfield support Southdown Velo Goodwood Summer Series 2016

Portfield are proud to support Southdown Velo Goodwood Series 2016

Southdown Velo, is a ten race series running every Tuesday evening starting at 6pm. There will be a Youth Race starting at 6.30pm followed by an E/1/2 category and a 3/4 handicap race following immediately after the youth race (approximately 7pm) each week. Due to a sponsorship donation from Hargroves Cycles all Youth riders can enter for just £2 on the line.

The races are all authorised by the British Cycling Federation, as the national governing body for cycling in GB. Riders who gain success in the individual races will receive category points awarded by British Cycling, which is likely to make the event popular to cycle racers from across the South and South East.

Goodwood Racing Circuit is a historic venue for both two and four wheeled events. The 2.4 mile (3.8k) track is situated near Chichester, West Sussex on the estate of Goodwood House and completely encircles the Chichester/Goodwood airfield.

The circuit will be open to spectators before and during the event. Traditionally cycling events have not attracted a wide audience other than family and friends of the participants. Goodwood, however, is different with a long history of spectator involvement stretching from last years appearance of Sir Chris Hoy MBE leading a 72 rider, two lap demonstration to mark the 100 th year of the Tour de France to the 1982 UCI Road World Championship.
