Team Sky and Jaguar set Ulster a challenge

Local cyclists are being offered the chance to Ride Like a Pro and win a Pinarello DOGMA F8 bike, as ridden by Team Sky, and an eight-day cycling experience in Tuscany at an event staged by local Jaguar dealer Charles Hurst this weekend.

The top male and female participants from Saturday's Belfast event will go through to compete in a national Grand Final at Fen End in the West Midlands next month.

Grand Finalists will get an exclusive chance to improve their cycling knowledge from members of the Team Sky management, as well as coaching from professional racing drivers in preparation for a Sports Director Challenge, where they will test their driving skills against a Team Sky Sports Director.

The Charles Hurst Jaguar ride will take place on Saturday over 30 and 50 mile routes from the Boucher Road showroom to Drumbeg, Maghaberry and Hillsborough, returning via Carryduff.

It promises to be a fantastic event.

Jaguar is an official Innovation Partner to Team Sky, having supplied the two-time Tour de France champions with a fleet of luxury, high performance vehicles, including the Jaguar XF Sportbrake and F-TYPE Coupé, since its inception in 2010.
