The annual Braveheart Fund dinner was held in Kilmarnock near Glasgow on Saturday night and raised a further £40,000 to help Scottish cyclists develop and travel to races.

Almost 400 people packed the function room in the Park Hotel in Kilmarnock as Scottish cycling came together for the good of the sport. Money was raised thanks to the Braveheart Fund ride held on Saturday morning, when 300 battled terrible weather to ride with Mark Cavendish and Sean Kelly. A raffle, draws and sponsor donations also raised cash but yet again it was the auction of jerseys and cycling memorabilia that raised most of the money.
