The Sky Plus HD Trade Team will compete in Manchester this weekend. Olympic heroes Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton, Jason Kenny and Shanaze Reade make up part of the overall squad.

The team will be wearing Sky Plus HD Trade Team branded kit, which has been designed by Sky’s creative agency Brothers & Sisters, for the first time.
