Next Thursday 11 April sees the launch of a new photographic exhibition at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester which will remain in situ for at least 12 months, and if the pictures here are anything to go by, it should be well worth paying a visit.

Called Foto Velo Drome, the exhibition features 64 photographs by Chris Keller-Jackson, who has spent more than a decade following cycling and who was commissioned by the National Cycling Centre to capture images of top British and international stars riding the boards at the velodrome.

The exhibition is sponsored by Brother UK, and besides Andy Tennant, Ed Clancy, Chris Hoy and Alex Dowsett featured here, other stars snapped by Keller-Jackson include Victoria Pendleton, Mark Cavendish and Jess Varnish.

Phil Jones, UK Head of Brother, commented: "When I heard about this project I knew we had to be involved. Firstly it's an opportunity to showcase the capabilities of our A3 printers [on which many of the images are printed].

“Secondly we believe in supporting local initiatives which give something back to this great region. As a keen cyclist and regular visitor to the NCC, I know this exhibition will have a fantastic impact."

After an invitation only private view, the exhibition will open to the public next Thursday 11 April from 7.30pm to 9pm, and high resolution prints can be bought from Keller-Jackson’s website, with 10 per cent of profits going to charities nominated by the National Cycling Centre.
