The countdown to the Surrey Hills Road Race Festival is on, and SRAM and Santini have just confirmed they'll be in attendance.
That means you'll be able to see the latest from the Italian clothing brand, with their new Santini Fashion Summer range plus the first look at some of their autumn and winter range.
You'll be able to buy Orica GreenEdge, Katusha, Vaconsoleil, Australian National Team, Giro stage jerseys and leader replica jerseys, sock and caps at the festival, with special prices that you won't get anywhere else.
SRAM will be bringing their latest groupsets and wheels and will be on hand to answer any technical questions about any of their products.
And finally, French manufacturer Look will have a stand with their latest models. Following on from the launch at the Tour de France of the 675 they will have some of the bikes which Endura Racing premiered in the 2011 international season. 695 and 586 road bikes will be shown as well as the high end 596 time trial bike.
These handmade bikes will be on the LOOK stand and there will be a very limited quantity of ex-team bikes for sale. Many with riders names decaled on the top tube which will carry a certain amount of prestige..
The Surrey Hills Road Race Festival is a free event for anyone heading to the area around Box Hill – which the men’s race passes nine times. The race route is right outside the Festival and you won’t miss any of the action from the rest of the circuit thanks to the big BBC screen in the Festival grounds.
The Surrey Hills Road Race Festival will take place at Denbies Vineyard on the A24 just outside Dorking, Surrey. It’s a 5-minute walk from Dorking mainline and Deepdene stations. The A24 will be closed to motor traffic on Saturday and Sunday but you’ll be able to walk and cycle to the festival and there’s secure bike parking on site.
The Festival will be open from 8am to 7pm on both Saturday, 28 July – the day of the men’s road race – and Sunday, 29 July – the day of the women’s road race.
For all the information you need head along to the Festival website.
