The Rule 5 team are heading down to the National Cycling Centre in Manchester this weekend for the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup Round 1. The event sees the culmination of three months’ social media and PR work and the team will be issuing live updates to the media via Facebook and Twitter on both Friday and Saturday night.
Blue Peter are covering the legacy work being done to promote children’s interest in the sport, The Gadget Show have used practise sessions to test action video cameras, and BBC News who reported on the build up last week will be down again with a crew on Friday evening. XFM and Radio Manchester have also covered the event so it’s already been a hectic week with the real action still not due for another 24 hours. There are still a few tickets available but the finals on Saturday are sure to sell out so you’ll need to be quick.
