2009 Brompton World Championship

Brompton World ChampionshipIn a recent Bicycle Times  mini-review, I wrote about a Brompton S6L folding bike. in the review I breifly mentioned the Brompton World Championship (BWC). If you are not familiar with the Championship, it is a bike race with some unique rules. Not only are you racing on a folding bike, but there is a strict formal dress code. All of the racers must wear a suit jacket, collared shirt and tie. Short are allowed, but no lyra. Darn Brits, always outclassing us!

This year the BWC was held on October 4th at the birth place of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshie, England. The race attracted 550+ racers to compete the 8-mile loop around some of the most beautiful scenery in England.  For more information and results checkout Bromptons website.
