Eastlands Velo and Sportcity Velo
Eastlands Velo and Sportcity Velo are youth and junior cycling clubs based at the HSBC UK National Cycling Centre in Manchester. Their main activity is track cycling, and they also do mountain biking, closed circuit racing and cyclo cross. They run weekly track sessions for First-Claim club members here at the Manchester Velodrome (HSBC UK National Cycling Centre) for youth and junior riders from beginner level upwards. Over the years their members have included Olympic gold medallists Jason Kenny (2012 & 2016 Gold team sprint) and Steven Burke (team pursuit). Jason joined the club in 2000 and Steven arrived in 2002. Both moved on to Sportcity Velo, winning national titles there and then on to the British Cycling talent programme.
