At 18:30 GMT on Saturday 18 March, television viewers in the UK and Ireland were able to watch the 2022 UCI Track Champions League feature in the third episode of BT Sport 2’s new accessible series, Deaf Away Days. The episode is now available free to all without the need for a subscription via btsport.com and the BT Sport App in the UK and Ireland, and free to all without a subscription across Europe via Eurosport.com.

The episode follows former Team GB members Marios and Memnos Costi as they visit Lee Valley Velopark in London for the final round of the 2022 UCI Track Champions League season.

During the episode, the brothers talk to six-time Olympic champion and UCI Track Champions League Ambassador Sir Chris Hoy and Australian star Matthew Richardson as he sets his sights on winning the Men’s Sprint category. They also had the opportunity to meet the most successful British female athlete in Olympic history, Dame Laura Kenny, who competed in front of a packed home crowd.

The episode also follows the brothers as they meet with representatives from the Lee Valley VeloPark-based Deaf Cycling UK organisation to find out more about their work and the positive impact cycling has on the physical and mental health of deaf people.

The series forms part of BT Sport’s Sign Up initiative that aims to raise the profile of the deaf community within sport, help make its programming accessible to all, and create new opportunities.
