The iconic “Pringle” Velodrome building dominates Lee Valley Velopark. The London Olympics has left us with a fantastic cycling legacy with Track, Circuit, BMX and MTB all on the one site.
The trails here were designed and built by MTB Trail legend Dafydd Davies of Coed Y Brenin fame utilising rubble from the site clearance…. Re-Cycle takes on a whole new meaning here!
Originally, we only ever put an MSG event here to demonstrate that the much criticised “unraceable” trails, were in fact eminently raceable. However, the course immediately became an absolute favourite and has become a regular ever since…. not surprising really when you think who built it… the Father of all trail centres!…..
As an urban venue, it does have its issues, both with space and with variety, but as long as the MSG Massif like it we’ll continue to provide it….
Don’t forget to get your action shot from Basil or John with the Pringle in the background.
