Buy your ticket for the annual Good Friday Meeting at the Lee Valley VeloPark early and you'll be given the chance to meet the stars of the show

The Good Friday Meeting returns to the Lee Valley VeloPark on April 3 with organisers offering the first 250 ticket holders exclusive access to meet the stars competing.

In the past the meet has attracted the likes of Sirs Bradley Wiggins and Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton and a host of other Olympic and Paralympic medallists.

Dating back over 100 years, the Good Friday event moved to the Olympic velodrome in 2014 from its traditional home at Herne Hill to ensure it would never succumb to the weather.

Olympic champion and Good Friday Meeting ambassador, Ed Clancy, said: “I always enjoy competing at the Good Friday Meeting, it’s a competitive event, which attracts some of the world’s best riders but it has a unique atmosphere; it’s very relaxed and family-friendly.

“It’s a great chance to see some top action on the track and, this year, if you get in there quick, you could be in with a chance of meeting me on the day!”

Tickets start from £11.25 and just one ticket allows access to the whole day’s racing. Visit the Meeting’s website to snap up one of the VIP tickets.
