ONE Pro Cycling Day donated by Tim Bunting, BDS Sponsorship
The prize is a VVIP experience with the ONE Pro Cycling team at one of their races e.g The Tour of Britain. You and a guest will be hosted by the team at the start of a stage, meeting the riders, performance and support staff and seeing behind the scenes with the team who have plans to reach the Tour de France in 2020.
One of you will then join a Directeur Sportif (DS) and mechanic in a team car to follow the peloton as they compete in a stage in the race, seeing first-hand how the team operates whilst competing – it’s like being in the centre circle of a cup final at Wembley.
Finally, you’ll be greeted at the finish by the team bus and will speak to team management who will review the day with you (you may even get a healthy snack from the team nutritionist), before being presented with signed ONE Pro goodies.
