A bike ride on the Formula One Urban Circuit of Valencia





Intrepid cyclist and British Valencia journo, Derek Workman put on his 'go faster' cap and took to the hot tarmac of the new Formula One Urban Circuit by the port of Valencia last night. He cycled for just a few of metres of the 5.56 km course, which is still being readied for the first event, The Formula Three weekend on the 26th July.
Derek then had a chat with Eric Taylor live on air on Onda Cero International. Derek told Eric that the track was a delight to ride on and though his multi-geared mountain bike was fast, he was unable to reach the 300 km per hour max speed limit the tarmac is built to withstand.
