SPIN IT TO WIN IT
Make the trek to Hong Kong’s impressive velodrome at the PRURide Six Day Series, the world’s biggest track cycling party, in Asia for its first time ever. This international cycling series serves up the thrill of racing with a party atmosphere, thanks to live DJ performances and low lighting that are more LKF than TKO. Catch the action up close inside the track, or settle for spectator stands that are still lively. Be sure to catch homegrown Olympian Sarah Lee Wai-sze compete against some of the world’s top riders while you enjoy the party.
