The 4th Brompton World Championship was held on Sunday 4th October 2009 at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.
Approximately 600 people took part in the Le Mans style race around the 13 km Blenheim track. The race is an enthusiastic and colourful showcase of British eccentricity . Competitors race wearing a jacket and tie (some with Top hats and others in hats to rival Ladies day at Ascot Races) and of course riding the world famous Brompton folding bicycle powder coated by EQC . The race itself is very keenly contested with prizes in various categories including fastest male, female, junior, veteran and team as well as best dressed male and best dressed female riders.
As a longstanding partner to Brompton, EQC were proud sponsors of the Brompton team who came first in the team race.
