Wembley Park plays host to the Tour Series 2017 on Tuesday, as top elite racers from across the globe battle it out, alongside double Olympic champion Ed Clancy OBE.

Britain’s leading cycle race series will include a star-studded line-up of elite professional racers, who will race around a 1.5km circuit of the area, including the concourse of Wembley Stadium and Olympic Way, known to fans the world over as Wembley Way.

The event is free to attend and spectators can look forward to seeing 13 top women’s teams battling it out in the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series race at 6.30pm, including UCI teams Drops and Team WNT, plus the Storey Racing squad of Britain’s most decorated Paralympian Dame Sarah Storey.

The men’s teams will take to the circuit for round four of the Tour Series at 8.30pm, led by defending team champions JLT Condor, who include Clancy in their line-up.

Riders will be racing into the twilight with the race and podium presentations concluding shortly before 10pm on the finish outside London Designer Outlet (LDO).

Those popping down to see the races will also be able to enjoy the free activities taking place around the site, from 1pm onwards – everything from community races, to show-and-tells from some of the biggest cycling names around and free cycling giveaways.

The cycling festival is being billed as having something for the whole family, including street food venors lining Olympic Way and restaurants at the LDO, who will be rolling out the red carpet.

The Tour Series got underway at Redditch in Worcestershire this week and finishes three weeks later in Stevenage on Bank Holiday Monday May 29.

More information on the activities can be found brent.gov.uk/tourseries and highlights of every round of the Tour Series will be shown on ITV4, with programmes also be available on demand via the ITV Hub.
