The UCI World Road Cycling Championships in Richmond Men's Elite Individual Time Trial will kick-off from KD on 23 September.  

We spoke to several people yesterday, who told us the front of the park will be open and free to the public for the event.  Chef Paul also plans to serve a special menu that day, which we hope to share soon.

Here is the information from the KD site:

The Road World Championships (Worlds) is cycling’s pinnacle event, held annually in an international city as chosen by the Union Cyclist International (UCI) through a competitive bidding process similar to the Olympic Games.

The Worlds is a nine-day event, featuring 12 Championship races for Elite Men and Women, Under 23 Men and Junior Men and Women. It is a rare opportunity for the athletes to compete for their country, just as they do during the Olympic Games. Athletes compete in three different disciplines including the traditional Road Race, the Individual Time Trial and the recently introduced Team Time Trial. World Champions are crowned in each discipline.

The Worlds is truly one of the great global sporting events. It is covered by more than 500 media outlets from around the world and is broadcast live to a global audience of more than 300 million people.

That is pretty cool! I would imagine that a lot of visitors from other parts of the world will enjoy going up our little Eiffel Tower.
