Meet the riders from Rapha Condor Sharp
Rapha Condor Sharp's stars will be making their way to Birmingham to join title sponsor and bike manufacturer, Condor, to celebrate a dazzling season, which ended in a blaze of glory on the streets of London at the Tour of Britain just one week ago.
The Tour of Britain was the cherry on top of an already brilliant year for the Rapha Condor Sharp team.
Jon Tiernan-Locke was one of the standout riders of the race, demonstrating his awesome climbing prowess by winning the Skoda King of the Mountains competition, as well as showing enormous stage race potential by finishing as the best domestic British rider overall.

Joining him at the Cycle Show stand will be former National Champion, Kristian House, who was once again one of the main protagonists of the Tour of Britain, twice being crowned the race's most aggressive rider. The wily Mr House has had another brilliant season, taking overall victory at the Tour of South Africa, and a stage win at the Vuelta a Leon in Spain.
The team's Tour Series winning criterium specialists will also be represented by fans' favourite, Dean Downing, and National Criterium Champion, Graham Briggs, who will both be meeting and answering questions from the show visitors.
Briggs' special edition all white National Champions bike will be on display, alongside Kristian House's Di2-equipped machine.
Olympic Track racing stars, Ed Clancy and Andrew Tennant, will also be making an appearance on the Condor stand at the show. Ed and Andy have both had an impressive debut season for the Rapha Condor Sharp team, and with both the riders' sights firmly fixed on the London Olympics next year, 2012 should yield some even more impressive results to add to their collections of World and Olympic titles.
