Cyclists of­fered fund­ing

Waipa Post - - The Country -

Are you a Te Awa­mutu Sports Cy­cling Un­der 19 road rider with am­bi­tions to go fur­ther in the sport?

If so, then why not ap­ply for a Pa­trick Bevin Road Schol­ar­ship?

In 2016, Bevin kindly do­nated gear to his cur­rent club — TA Sports — to raise funds to sup­port young road cyclists reach their goals.

The com­mit­tee has de­cided to con­tinue of­fer­ing the schol­ar­ship for U19 road rid­ers after award­ing it to three de­serv­ing club mem­bers in 2017.

If you would like to ap­ply for a schol­ar­ship, fill in your de­tails and com­plete the on­line ap­pli­ca­tion form by Fri­day, July 13, 2018. The win­ner/win­ners will be an­nounced at the club’s an­nual din­ner on Fri­day, July 27.

Bevin will again ride the Tour de France as a mem­ber of the BMC Rac­ing Team after break­ing his foot on the open­ing stage in 2017.

The 27-year-old has re­port­edly been in the form of his life in 2018, fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the time trial at the Tour of Cal­i­for­nia, fifth in the pro­logue at the Cri­terium du Dauphine and fifth on stage two at Tir­renoA­dri­atico.

Bevin will be joined on the start line by fel­low New Zealand cyclists Jack Bauer (Mitchel­tonS­cott) and Dion Smith (Wan­tyGroupe Gobert).
