As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations, British Cycling is launching a Hall of Fame and, at the organisation’s annual awards dinner in February 2010, the first fifty individuals will be inducted. The Hall of Fame will then continue to grow with further inductees announced every year.
British Cycling is now looking for nominations for this first 50 inductees. The full list of nominees will then be handed over to the Hall of Fame judging panel (see below for details), who will come up with the final list of fifty. British Cycling is looking for the Hall of Fame to recognise outstanding individuals from this country, across the whole cycling spectrum, from volunteers, event organisers, and race officials through to coaches, athletes and influential figures within the sport.
