Dave Rayner Fund celebrates 20 years of support

Dave Rayner Fund celebrates its 20th year supporting UK cyclists looking to further their career abroad

The Fund which was started by the cycling community after the tragic death of Dave Rayner, who, like many riders today, took the tough route of racing and living abroad.

Since the start of the Fund over £600,000 in grants have seen the likes of David Millar, Adam Yates and the Downing brothers able to fulfil their professional dream. Today just over 20 riders are supported by the Dave Rayner Fund, seeing the likes of Dan Mclay, Owain Doull and Tao Geoghegan-Hart, all of which competed in the Tour de L’avenir recently.

The special milestone will be celebrated at the annual dinner taking place on November 8 in Leeds. The cycling evening is open to all, with the chance to dine with cycling’s top stars including Lizzie Armitstead, David Millar, Ben Swift and Scott Thwaies.

The evening is not only to show case the Funds success, but also to help raise money to discover and support the current crop of talent. Event details, tickets and accommodation information is all available via the Dave Rayner Fund website.
