Our beginner Phil is up for anything on two wheels. We brought him along to France for the launch of this year’s Track Champions League, to find out just how fast he could go on a flying lap. With advice from Manon, current track stars Pauline Grabosch and Gavin Hoover, and Olympic legend Sir Chris Hoy, how will Phil get on in this velodrome challenge?
