Sir Chris, who showcased his new brand of Hoy Bikes at the Wrotham Road park, praised the circuit.

He said: “It was perfect for our testing with plenty of twists and turns to get a feel for the bikes handling, short climbs and long straights to really push it."

He later took to Twitter to say: "Thanks to everyone who braved the freezing conditions & came down to Cyclopark in Kent today, amazing turnout and a brilliant facility".
