The Dave Rayner Fund, which works to enable young cyclists from all backgrounds to further their career in the sport, has been awarded charitable status by the Charity Commission, and will now be known as The Rayner Foundation.

The charity is named in memory of Dave Rayner, a professional cyclist who was one of the few British cyclists, at that time, to flourish in a cycling team outside the UK.

Riders who have benefitted from the fund include Tao Geoghegan-Hart who is now riding for Team Ineos, World Champion in last year’s Team Time Trial, Hannah Barnes and Tom Southam who after a successful career on the bike is now a Directeur Sportif for one of the top teams in the world, EF Education First Pro Cycling Team.
