Redbull followed its Elite BMX racers at Manchester last weekend for round 1 of the 2013 UCI BMX Supercross at Manchester UK.
It was a great weekend for the British duo of Liam Phillips and Shanaze Reade who both doubled winning both Friday’s Time Trial and Saturday’s main event racing in front of a sell out audience at the £20m indoor BMX facility at the National Cycling centre. The atmosphere for the Saturday night racing was electric and the noise from the crowd deafening whenever the Brits took to the track. From the middle of the track the crowd is often lost but the BMX Arena was electric and filled with cheers, applause and appreciation for the sports best athletes who delivered an amazing night of BMX racing.
Amongst the crowd were Olympic Gold Medalists Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton to cheer on their Tean GB team mates from both the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics.
