This weekend, here in Norfolk we proudly held the GB Cycling Festival which included the HSBC National TT and National Road Race championships.
On Thursday the national TT racers were treated to a start/finish line at the Sandringham country estate with a route that headed through Anmer, Bircham and Fring, although i'm sure they weren't paying much attention to the scenery!
On Sunday the road races started and finished in Norwich City Centre, headed out through the Norfolk broads to Cromer and then returned to the City via Booton. It was a great race to watch and we highly recommend seeking out some coverage if you missed it!
Taking the honours on the two days of racing were:
Men's RR - Ben Swift
Women's RR - Alice Barnes
Men's TT - Alex Dowsett
Women's TT - Alice Barnes
Also on Sunday, Au Wheels were proudly showing off our new #GoldLabel range of wheels. For 2019 we've completely overhauled our product range and replaced all models with our totally-new full-Carbon wheelsets.
Using our new Filament Wound Carbon process we're able to create lighter, stronger carbon rims to go with our Sapim Spokes and self-engineered hubs. This makes for superlight, super-fast wheels and we couldn't wait to show them off.
Taking around 18 months to develop and bring to market and moving our manufacturing to Germany has meant some big changes and some big risks for us, but we couldn't be happier with the positive reception we got from the public, race teams and pro riders alike!
The #GoldLabel range is now available and delivery is only 14 days. Go to our wheels page to check them out!
