Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation is proud to sponsor the 2019 Queen Victoria Cyclocross race in Telford, Shropshire.

The Queen Victoria Cyclocross is a unique event that took place on June 29th 2019 in Blists Hill Victorian Town in Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge. Riders tackle the challenging course which includes the daunting “Incline Plane” as well as the fast decent into the “Village Green.”

The event took place in the evening and enabled spectators and riders alike to experience the amazing venue. All proceeds from the event went  towards the Museum Trust. Schneider Electric sponsored the ‘Tykes and Urchins’ (U10/U12), ‘Vagabonds and Chimney Sweeps’ (Youth) races and entries for the race were received from far and wide.

“Our electrical engineering apprenticeship programme is designed to give young talent experience, whilst gaining a qualification. We will provide opportunities to learn and develop whilst challenging with real responsibilities, allowing young engineers to shape their future career with Schneider Electric. Above our apprenticeship schemes, we are committed to giving young people the opportunity to develop new skills and find new passions. The Cyclocross race is another chance or us to reaffirm that commitment,” Stewart Gregory, Vice President Partner Projects at Schneider Electric.
