The Tokyo 2020 Track Bike

Guernsey: Wednesday 27th September 7:30pm, Les Cotils

Jersey: Thursday 28th September 8pm, Pomme D’Or Hotel

The Team GB track bicycle for the Tokyo 2020 caused a stir on its announcement. Its wide forks and unusual titanium-carbon frame were a radical departure from convention. With the onset of the pandemic and delay to the Olympics, it would take another eighteen months for the world to see the results.

Tony Purnell, former Head of Technology at British Cycling, will talk about how engineering helped Great Britain top the cycling medal table at the Tokyo Olympics.

For Jersey Lectures – the talk will start at 8:00pm (which is free to attend) but is preceded by an optional dinner, starting at 6:30pm. If you wish to attend the dinner at a cost of £30pp bookings can be made via Eventbrite (coming soon). If you have any dietary requirements, please email
