CTC, British Cycling, UK Triathlon, Fli Distribution, Royles, Velocite and Look Mum No Hands confirmed; Revolution Series appearing too

Bike and triathlon show announces early exhibitors

A number of early bird exhibitors have been revealed ahead of the debut Manchester Bike and Triathlon Show.

As announced on BikeBiz.com last month, the show content already includes household names such as British Cycling, CTC, UK Triathlon, Look Mum No Hands, Rollapaluza and Shoretrax, among others. However, details of some of the first exhibitors to have signed up are also now being announced by the show.

Fli Distribution will be there with their KTM range of bikes, while Red Cloud distributed Velocite will also be present with its growing range of bikes and wheels.

Primal Europe will also be heading to Manchester to launch the new Helix range of customisable and premium ride wear, while Clif Bar will be in attendance with its complete range of sports nutrition.

Royles will be showcasing some of its extensive portfolio of bike and tri brands, while Koolstof coaching will be offering a range of fitness testing and coaching advice for cyclists and triathletes of all abilities.

Quick Energy has also confirmed a spot at the show with round the world record breaker, Mike Hall, coming along to talk about his exploits and his future plans.

TCL Sports will bring along some of its wide range of products from 2XU, Newton and GU Energy.

Vulpine apparel have booked a stand and are to host a ‘Vulpine Fete’.

Other companies in attendance include Xtra Mile Events, Purple Harry and custom clothing experts, Champion Systems.

Hamerville’s Colin Gale explained that the show is growing faster than even he had imagined at the outset: “When we were asked to organise this show, we knew that the North West was a prime area for such a show to succeed in. Since then, we have been truly astonished at the levels of interest we have received from the trade and consumer audiences alike. Our marketing effort is only just starting and yet we are already being asked for tickets whilst the trade continues to be excited at the prospect of exhibiting there.”

“Over the coming weeks we have some major announcements planned in terms of both content for the consumer and more great brands signing up to exhibit, so please check the website regularly for updates.”

The organisers of the Revolution Series have also announced that they will be working with the fledgling show. Season 10 of the Revolution Series begins at the National Cycling Centre on October 27th, with three of the four rounds in Manchester. The Bike & Triathlon Show begins two weeks after the Revolution finale in Glasgow on February 2nd.

FACE Partnership MD James Pope said: "Revolution has seen a massive surge in interest in cycling with tickets already sold out for the first two events so I think The Bike and Triathlon Show will be very well received in Manchester. We’re delighted to partner with the event and promote the show to the Revolution spectators across the season."
