Planet X-Northside team take on the Tour Series

Planet X Bikes will be in the thick of the action in the televised Tour Series this week. The Planet X-Northside team will contest the ‘North Division’ rounds starting with Motherwell on Tuesday 17th May and televised on ITV4.

The team can select from a roster of ten riders with five to ride on the night which in Motherwell will be: Will Brown | Ben Hetherington | Alex Luhrs | Brad Stokes | Ryan Davis | DS John Reeve.


After Motherwell the team move on to the Old Town-based circuit in Edinburgh on Thursday 19th May, Durham on Tuesday 31st May and Stoke-on-Trent on Thursday 2nd June.


The team are racing on our Aero Road bike the EC-130 E which team rider Dan Bigham described as “not just aero looking” when he knocked 1 minute 39 seconds off a Reading CC Sporting time trial course record last week.


Planet X-Northside have also been racking up the wins in criterium racing as well with the EC-130 E and the total number of team victories so far this season stands at 21.


The EC-130E 'Rivet Rider' is built for pure performance. With class-leading aerodynamics, an incredibly stiff pedalling platform and efficient power transfer. 

Will Brown talks about the Tour Series and the EC-130 E here.


Here’s the teaser film for the series which is televised on ITV4 (and available on ITV Player). The Tour Series brings top level cycle racing to city centres for an eighth season so why not check out the races near you?
