The Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series – 2014 photo blog

The Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series, 19th May – 11th June 2015, is a women’s event that runs alongside the men’s Pearl Izumi Tour Series. It consists of five rounds on city centre circuits and, if you’re anywhere near Redditch, Motherwell, Croydon, Peterborough or Bath then I heartily recommend you take an evening out to go along and watch. Find out more here.

Last year I got a ‘back stage’ press pass for the Woking event. It was a fantastic opportunity to witness an event from warm up to post-race interviews, as well as see top riders such as Sarah Storey, Eileen Roe and Helen Wyman in action. And the sun shone, which always helps a photo pop!! My 2014 pictures are below:

    I’ve been at the 2013 and 2014 events in Woking and the women’s race is always fantastic. Better than the men’s in many ways. They’re all absolute rockets around the circuit and the crowd atmosphere is incredible too. A shame they’re not coming back to Woking this year.
