Sir Chris Hoy MBE was present to show support for the launch of the Jaguar Cycle Challenge at The London Bike Show 2013. The multiple world and Olympic champion track cyclist, and Jaguar Academy of Sport Ambassador, was on hand as the programme, which will be managed by Jaguar dealerships in partnership with local cycling clubs throughout the UK, was announced to an enthusiastic audience.

Speaking at the event, which attracted over 85,000 visitors throughout the weekend to London Excel, Sir Chris Hoy MBE said: “It is fantastic to see Jaguar and its network of UK dealers taking an active role in cycling. I hope people across the nation are inspired to take part in the Jaguar Cycle Challenge.

“It is important that we harness the rising popularity of cycling in this country and through the Jaguar Academy of Sport, there is a real opportunity to facilitate the development of rising stars in this great sport.”

Every Jaguar dealer across the UK will be holding their inaugural Cycle Challenge events on 01 February, working with local cycling clubs and bicycle retailers to support and encourage cycling programmes in the local community.  A Jaguar dealer locator is available online at: http://www.jaguar.com/gb/en/dealerlocator/

The commitment of Jaguar to cycling is highlighted by its successful partnership with Team Sky; winners of the 2012 Tour de France. Two prototype versions of the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake in striking livery were used to support the Team Sky Riders and its management team throughout cycling’s most famous endurance race.

During the first weekend in February visitors to UK Jaguar dealers can be among the first to discover why the new XF Sportbrake lives at the heart of the pro-peloton, and prepare to achieve peak cycling performance in 2013. The all-new XF Sportbrake is a serious cyclist’s dream. With a balance of flowing beauty and intelligent utility, it’s packed with sophisticated technology for ultimate driving engagement, yet offers a spacious 1,675 litres of loadspace to accommodate cycling equipment.

What is the Jaguar Cycle Challenge. Something's going on at my local Jaguar dealer but I don't understand what. the event itself doesn't seem to be explained anywhere.

As a member of a local cycling club I would be interested to know what's going on.

Hi Andrew

Thank you for your enquiry, all the information I have is in the Blog from the Press Release.

As this initiative is coordinated through Jaguar Dealerships, perhaps if you make a quick enquiry to http://www.jaguar.com/gb/en/dealerlocator/ for your local dealership, they might be able to help.

I've also copied-in Claire Boakes - Jaguar's Press Officer for the Jaguar Academy for Sport who I'm sure will be able to assist you further.

Best wishes

Charles
