Next generation of British cyclists in training at Castle Combe Circuit
Castle Combe Circuit might be more recognised for petrol power than pedal power but the Wiltshire circuit became home for British Cycling's rising stars last week.
The 1.85-mile tarmac track proved an ideal traffic-free training facility when cycling's governing body hired it for a National School of Racing coaching session.
Event organiser Andy Cook said: "I have been running cycling activities at the circuit for many years now and can only reiterate how fabulous the facilities are for all cyclists, whatever your age or ability.
"We have seen around 100 cyclists aged under 16 come here from across the whole of the south of England to partake in cycling training specifically developed by British Cycling for the stars of the future.

"British Cycling has been running this programme for more than ten years to identify young cyclists destined for greater cycling success. You only have to look at Team GB performances in the Olympics to see how this grassroots development is already reaping rewards.
"Looking out at the circuit, you wonder which one of these kids will perhaps be the Bradley Wiggins or Lizzie Armistead of the future. What you can say, though, is that all are receiving world class coaching at this great venue. It can only help develop cycling as a sport."
Castle Combe Circuit is hoping to welcome British Cycling back to the circuit throughout 2013. In the interim, however, it will also be welcoming Andy Cook Cycling Training Evenings on Tuesdays and Andy Cook Race Evenings on Thursdays from early April through to September.
The circuit will also once again be hosting the Castle Combe Cycling Festival and Severn Bridge Sportive on Sunday, June 2.
