Close to 1,000 young cyclists took part in the various kids’ rides at OCBC Cycle Singapore yesterday, including The Junior Challenge, a new 30-minute ride which saw Singapore’s aspiring cyclists fire their way around the F1 Pit Building.

The action got underway at 5.45pm this evening with The Tricycle Ride (100m), as the event’s youngest cyclists lined up in front of the F1 Pit Building and rode their way to the finish line in front of a large audience.

The Tricycle Ride was followed by two Mighty Savers Kids Rides (5-7 and 8-9 years) before the 10-12 year-olds lined up for the Junior Challenge under lights at 7.30pm.

The 30-minute ride saw some fantastic cycling action as Singapore’s up and coming cyclists flew around the track, emulating their professional cycling heroes from the previous night.

“The kids’ rides at OCBC Cycle Singapore have always proven to be hugely popular and today was certainly no different. Along with the always popular Tricycle Ride and Mighty Savers Kids Rides, the introduction of The Junior Challenge proved to be an outstanding success. fter watching two outstanding Criterium races early in the evening, the large crowd in attendance was treated to an absolute spectacle when Robbie McEwen sprinted home to become the fourth champion of the OCBC Cycle Singapore Professional Criterium. He put on a true Criterium master class tonight, finishing ahead of what was the strongest professional field we’ve ever assembled at this event,” said Chris Robb, Managing Director, Spectrum Worldwide.
