Cyclists offered funding
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).
