NEWS I JANUARY 2015 Dave Rayner Fund Celebrates 20th Year


A host of starts of cycling, riders, fans and friends were in Leeds on the 8th November 2014 to mark the achievements of the Dave Rayner Fund over two decades. The 2014 UCI Women’s World Cup Champion, Lizzie Armitstead was joined by David Millar, and Russ & Dean Downing in a night of celebration. Dave Rayner began his career as a cyclist, like many racing in the UK and


demonstrating his talent on the domestic racing scene, taking the 1984 National Junior Road Race championship. Dave took the tough choice back then to go race aboard in Italy. His career soared peaking with a two year spell with the Pro team ‘Buckler’ of the early 90’s managed by the infamous Jan Rass.


After his tragic death, the cycling


community wanted to support his memory by giving other young riders the chance to follow in his path and since then over £600,000 in grants have been given to young riders to enable them to race abroad. They have included David Millar, one of the very first recipients, through to more recent champions like Adam Yates. www.daveraynerfund.co.uk


SUPERSTARS RETURN TO MANCHESTER FOR UCI BMX SUPERCROSS WORLD CUP


ANNOUNCED FOR NEW WEEKEND FORMAT


TICKETS


British Cycling, in partnership with Manchester City Council and UK Sport, has announced that tickets for the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup went on general sale on the 11th November 2014. The event, which last year saw the finals unfold in front of a sold-out arena, is expecting to attract record crowds when it returns to Manchester this April 2015. Such is the anticipated demand from fans that this year’s event will be staged on the evening of Saturday 18 and afternoon of Sunday 19 to accommodate the increasing number of families and BMX enthusiasts keen to attend from outside the region.

Previous years have seen the event staged on a Friday and Saturday night. Activity commences from 4pm on


Saturday April 18 when doors to the world- class BMX centre will open to adrenalin fuelled crowds looking to watch riders jostle to qualify for Sunday’s finals in three rounds of motos. The top ranked 16 men and 8 women will then race the clock in the Time Trials Superfinals. Activity resumes from 2pm on Sunday April 19 when the doors re-open to what promises to be an action packed final. Attendees will see the world’s top 64 men and 32 women race from the eight man gate,


elbow to elbow through the rounds to claim victory in Manchester. An autograph session will open both days of the competition, offering fans the chance to meet with some of the best athletes in the sport. Speaking on the ticket announcement and new event format, Jonny Clay, British Cycling’s cycle sport and membership director, said: “The UCI BMX Supercross World Cup attracts a strong family audience. In moving the event to a Saturday and Sunday we hope to better accommodate their needs and provide fans from across the UK with the opportunity to watch the best BMX riders on the planet compete in Manchester.


“Following what has been an impressive year for the Great Britain BMX team, we’re expecting a strong response to tomorrow’s ticket release. We encourage fans wanting to secure their place and be a part of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup action to get their tickets early.”


The Manchester spectacle is the opening event in a five-stop global series which will also see rounds held in Papendal (Netherlands), Engelholm (Sweden), Santiago del Estero (Argentina) and Rock Hill, South Carolina (USA). It is the third time the city and world-renowned BMX venue will play host to the international event having staged successful events in 2013 and 2014.
