Ride like a pro with Jaguar Ride Out events for chance to join Team Sky training camp
Grand finalists will be tested for riding and driving skills, best two get tickets to Majorca
From September 29 to October 13 Team Sky and Jaguar are running a series of rides out of Jaguar dealers under the banner ‘Ride like a Professional’. Participants will have the chance to take part in a grand final event with Team Sky at a private test track.
Just like the team, riders will have vehicle support in the form of Jaguar’s XF Sportbrake estate, the car Sky has been using since the 2012 Tour de France.
There will be 15 rides in Welwyn Garden City, Guildford, Luton, Woodford (London), West Sussex, Southampton, Plymouth, Truro, Bristol, Newcastle, Houghton-le-Spring (Tyne and Wear), Stockton-on-Tees, Wilmslow, Stoke-on-Trent and Worcester.
Two cyclists from each ride will be selected by Jaguar to compete in the Grand Final which will test both driving and riding ability. Finalists will be driven by professional racing drivers in a range of Jaguar 'R' and 'R-S' vehicles, as well as the new F-TYPE, and will test their own driving skills against the clock in the Directeur Sportif Challenge, which will involve the driving skills required to support a professional cycling team.
Grand finalists will also compete in a time trial challenge, with the top two participants’ combined cycling and driving times winning a trip to Team Sky’s winter training camp in Majorca.
