Brompton World Championship

May 26th, 2011 Posted in Events


Registration for the Brompton World Championship 2011 is open! Register now to be a part of this hugely popular event.

The Brompton World Championship (BWC), now in its sixth year, will be held once again as part of the Breast Cancer Care Bike Blenheim Palace festival of cycling; this year the event will take place on Sunday 21st August.

The competition is sure to be intense as there will be no increase in participant numbers; registration will be limited to 750 riders, as was the case last year. As befits a true world championship, the race in 2011 will welcome the winners of the various Brompton National Championships from around the world.

The 2011 event will be held over the same circuit as in previous years, comprising 2 laps of a 6.5km course; this will give you the opportunity to beat the time you, and indeed the Champions, have set over the same course in earlier events.

Rules for the event are still pretty straightforward: helmets are a must, as are a blazer or suit jacket, collared shirt and neck tie. Sports attire is not permitted, unless it is hidden by the approved kit. There are prizes for the best-dressed, so competitors are encouraged to make an effort.

The deadline for registration is Sunday 7th August or whenever the event is full, which ever comes first.
