UK’s first Rampage cycle race raises £3,500 for LandAid
Hammerson’s Victoria Leeds has hosted The Rampage, an adrenaline-fuelled urban cycle challenge, for the first time in the UK.
A UK car park first, The Rampage was a lung-busting uphill battle between two riders to the summit of the car park, with the first rider across the finish line going through to the next round. With just under 200 riders taking part, the heats continued until one rider was left standing.
The event was open to everyone, serious bikers and have-a-go heroes were all welcome!
Hammerson’s Mark Bourgeois (60 sec) progressed to the knockout where he came up against double junior world champion Tom Pidcock who eventually won the event with a time of 53.70 sec. The under 18’s Winner was Max Krasinski (61.32) and senior ladies winner was Amber Hull (61.81).
Alongside all of the cycling action, spectators (including World/Olympus Triathlon hero Alistair Brownlee) enjoyed food, drink and entertainment, with Harvey Nichols and Issho providing well-deserved post-race refreshments.
Most importantly, the event raised £3,500 for LandAid to help end youth homelessness in the UK.
