Under sunny skies the build-up to the Grand Final of The Pearl Izumi Tour Series and Johnson Health Tech Grand Prix Series in Ipswich got underway on Wednesday.

Shoppers in Ipswich had the chance to try out the fun and excitement of cycle racing first hand on Wednesday, as the fantastic Rollerdrome came to the town centre.

Ipswich hosts the final round of The Pearl Izumi Tour Series and Johnson Health Tech Grand Prix Series on Friday 14th June, with activities throughout the afternoon on the town centre circuit, including the return of the men’s team time trial event.

MG Maxifuel professional Jamie Caldwell led the way, being joined on the static bikes by Ipswich Mayor Mary Blake, Emma Hibbert from sponsors Adnams and Adam Baker from Suffolk County Council, as part of their commitment to make Suffolk England’s most active county.
