Wheel giant Mavic and British bike product manufacturer Weldtite are among a list of 156 creditors that could be left up to £20m out of pocket after the collapse of major UK cycle distributor Moore Large.

The long-standing British distributor of bikes and cycling kit collapsed in March leaving many brands to have to sort their own alternative distribution channels in the UK. Lake shoes were among those that had to set up their own operations following the collapse.

Having trained as a journalist at Cardiff University I spent eight years working as a business journalist covering everything from social care, to construction to the legal profession and riding my bike at the weekends and evenings. When a friend told me Cycling Weekly was looking for a news editor, I didn't give myself much chance of landing the role, but I did and joined the publication in 2016. Since then I've covered Tours de France, World Championships, hour records, spring classics and races in the Middle East. On top of that, since becoming features editor in 2017 I've also been lucky enough to get myself sent to ride my bike for magazine pieces in Portugal and across the UK. They've all been fun but I have an enduring passion for covering the national track championships. It might not be the most glamorous but it's got a real community feeling to it.
