Cycling has featured in every Summer Olympic Games since the start of the modern Olympic movement in 1896. The award-winning London Velopark was built for the 2012 Summer Olympics, the first instance of the games to see men and women compete in the same number of events in all cycling disciplines. Scalextric's Team GB Velodrome Cycling set follows the traditional slot racing format, but instead of using cars there are two miniature cyclists. The set features a banked oval track, with two challenging chicanes to test your nerve. It features two Team GB Olympic cyclists and is an official product of Team GB.
2.72 metres of track (requires 105 cm x 61 cm of space)
Team GB display trackside feature

The two bicycles have different coloured bases so racers can easily identify their cyclists. The bicycles function the same as slot cars in other Scalextric sets (in fact both are even built for Easy Change Pick-ups and include Magnatraction) and are controlled using standard Scalextric controllers supplied in the set.
The bikes have revolving spoked front wheels
Both bikes are fitted with track-gripping magnets
Both bikes have quick-change braids
Micro Scalextric was designed with the youngest racers in mind. The super resistant vehicles are built to withstand the odd tumble and are fitted with extra strong magnets to reduce the odds of them coming off the circuit on corners taken at speed. The track in Micro Scalextric sets is more compact and is easier to connect and disconnect too, making for easier assembly and packing away. Micro Scalextric is the perfect introduction for young children to Scalextric, offering the thrill of the original range while amply accommodating the abilities of those taking their first steps into the world of slot car racing.
The cycles were very flimsy and broke when first used. i have been on holiday so could not reply sooner. A very disappointing birthday present for my grandson. Read morePublished 11 months ago by David Brian Lewis
My son is obsessed with cycling so we bought him this. It's okay but not great, the cyclist are easily broken and quite flimsy, far too much money for the qualityPublished 11 months ago by Julie Mulholland
