THE Braveheart cycling fund will support 27 Scottish cyclists throughout 2007, giving them £37,000 of backing. This is the highest number of riders the fund has supported, and the backup includes help towards accommodation, travel, coaching and their racing program.

The Braveheart fund, that is now in its fourth year, is focusing more of it?s efforts on junior riders, five of whom will be based in Belgium for much of the season, although the fund continues to support a wide range of riders on a three-tier funding structure.
