Thousands of people are expected at the three-day show which opens to the public today. We headed to yesterday’s press day for a sneak preview. Click here for a gallery of the goodies in store.

Olympic gold medalist, Joanna Rowsell, will open the show to the public at 10am today, and is one of a host of stars expected at the NEC over the next three days.

Tomorrow will see the likes of Irish road race legend, Sean Kelly, and Britain’s Sean Yates, who masterminded Bradley Wiggins’ greatest road successes, meet the public.

Many of the biggest brands in cycling are exhibiting at show, including Colnago, Condor, Cube, Raleigh, Specialized and Trek.

We cast an eye across the £14,999 Pinarello Bolide time trial bike ridden by Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome, a prototype 80th anniversary Colnago C59 built for Ernesto Colnago in striking gold, and a host of disc brake-equipped road bikes.

We’ll be bringing you reports on these machines and more in the days ahead, but for those eager to see the machines first hand, we’ve teamed up with show organisers, Upper Street Events, to offer this discounted ticket offer.

*Tickets are normally £13 in advance and £16 on the door. A £1 booking fee will be charged for all advance bookings.
