CC Hackney's special VIP guests of Fiat enjoyed an evening to remember down at the new Eastway indoor velodrome last Thursday. It was the opening session of the London round of the UCI World Cup series and the first track competition in the building. The four day event was an opportunity to test the venue and was part of the London Prepares programme being rolled out ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer.
Our group shared prime finish-line seating with the great and the washed including the current London mayor and avid cycling fan Boris 'bomber' Johnson. I gather that during the break complimentary posh drink and snacks were in good supply including the Ferrero Rocher and voluvents of course.
