Entries open for the UK Shimano Service Centre Championships

Shimano has launched the UK and Ireland’s first Shimano Service Centre Championships in a bid to find the best Shimano-trained bike mechanic in the country.

Entries have opened for Shimano Service Centre bike mechanics and their colleagues to enter the search for the best mechanic in the country.

The entry deadline is Wednesday, May 31, after which 24 finalists will be selected to compete in the Shimano Service Centre live final on Wednesday, October 11, at the Shimano Technical Centre in Milton Keynes.

Mechanics can enter on Shimano Tec by completing a three-step process online.

The competition is only open to bike mechanics that work in Shimano Service Centres and only one mechanic from each shop can enter.

As well as pride and recognition up for grabs, there will be VIP experiences on offer for the winners as well as the future possibility to compete in a European-wide competition.

  • Work at a Shimano Service Centre
  • Have completed their Shimano Service Centre Yearly Certificate
