Young ambitious riders seeking a Dave Rayner Fund grant to race abroad next year must apply by September 30.

If you are under 23, or a junior, and think you possess the X-factor to succeed in racing, Rayner Fund backing could help you realise your dreams.

In the Tour of Britain just ended, 13 riders in the field had previously benefited from Rayner Fund backing, including four who made the top 10 final overall.

They were Ian Stannard (GBR), third; Dan Martin (Team Garmin-Chipotle), fourth; Dan Fleeman (Anpost-M.Donnelly-Grant Thornton-Sean Kelly) sixth; and Russell Downing (Rapha-Condor-Recycling.co.uk), 10th.

Interviews to select the next crop of likely riders will be held in Yorkshire during November.

To apply you must complete the application form available to download from the Dave Rayner Fund website at www.daveraynerfund.com

You may either email it to jonnyclay@britishcycling.org.uk, or post it, to The Dave Rayner Fund, c/o 8 Beech Avenue, Horsforth, Leeds, LS18 4PA.
