Your chance to race Team Sky Brits!

| Blog, Cycling Plus, News | 18/11/2010 09:48am

If you reckon you’re a better cyclist than Bradley Wiggins and could ‘have’ Geraint Thomas in a sprint then next Friday – the 26th of November – is the chance to prove it…

We’re not entirley sure what ‘Contracts for Difference’ are, but IG Markets is the leading provider of them and, as a new official partner of Team Sky, they’re offering anyone in London’s Square Mile next week to take on Wiggo, Thomas and Ben Swift on some Watt Bikes.

The three Team Sky pros will be at Broadgate Circle, London, EC2 from 10am for the Square Mile Cycle Challenge and anyone who takes them on is in with a chance of winning prizes including a replica Team Sky Pinarello FP1 bike. If any competitor is able to beat a Team Sky rider, they will receive an official Team Sky Pinarello Dogma team-issue bike, worth over £8000.

“Cycling is currently going through a renaissance and we believe it has a specific appeal to our target audiences,” says Tim Howkins, CEO of IG Group. “We hope that our commitment to Team Sky will help them continue their pursuit for success, whilst helping IG Markets promote its products to a growing audience both here in the UK and across the globe.”

The ‘IG Markets Square Mile Cycle Challenge’ will take place between 10.00 and 15.30. Registration is open to everyone and must be completed in advance. To sign up to race, please visit

For non-competitors who would prefer just to soak up the pro race atmosphere or cheer on their mates, Eurosport’s David Harmon will be on hand to provide  race commentary while live footage of all the action will be displayed on a big screen. Spectators can also take advantage of a free bike service and can get autographs from Team Sky.
