For the 2011/2012 crit season we welcome Giant Bicycles as sponsor of Pitt Lane – a new initiative for racing at SKCC.

The guys at Giant are keen to support cycling at the grass roots and came up with the Pitt Lane idea as a way they could further their involvement with the club. Giant have also sponsored the SKCC Women’s Race Team for the past two years.

Judging from the delighted response of riders when they pick up their “was flat but now fixed for nothing” wheels we think this will be a popular service.

Pictured here are Matt (left) and Dom (right) from Giant with spare wheels, tubes and parts ready to go. And just a bit of housekeeping – if you pull in for a mechanical you must first check with the commissaire before rejoining the race. And you cannot have a lap out once 3 to go is called.
