Raleigh bikes for U14 and U16 winners
Raleigh, sponsors of the Mallory Park Youth Road Race League which starts in April, are pleased to announce that they have decided to continue to use the under 14 and under 16 leagues as an entrance point into their Rider Development programme.
As a direct result of this, the winners of the U14 and U16 Boys and Girls leagues in 2016 will be invited to join the 2017 Raleigh Rider Development programme which supports up and coming athletes with the loan of a latest racing bike for a full 2017 season.
In addition to this, the winners will also get a day with Team Raleigh, including a ride with some of the team professionals, and Mallory Park RR league will also provide the winners with free entry to all 2017 events.
League Organiser Mikes Twelves said “This is a fantastic prize that Raleigh has put up and shows their commitment to supporting cycling in the UK at all levels. It stimulated some great competition in 2015 and we are thrilled that they have decided to continue with this for 2016”
Raleigh’s Product Director Geoff Giddings commented “3 of the 4 2015 winners will be returning to the Raleigh League at Mallory this year on their new bikes, which is great for us. We were delighted with the commitment and passion shown by all the riders to the 2015 league. The competition across all categories last year was excellent and the Organisers have added some extra, innovative race formats for 2016. We are really excited about this opportunity to continue supporting what must be one of the best Youth leagues in the country”
