The C.A. Rhodes Memorial award for 2009 is to be made to Steve Peat in recognition of his achievements in Downhill Mountain Biking, in particular becoming world champion in 2009.
The memorial was instigated in 1961 as a tribute to the memory of Charles Arthur Rhodes (1895-1961) doyen of the Yorkshire Road Club, co-founder in 1932 of the Yorkshire Cycling Federation and a nationally recognised timekeeper and administrator. The Award is regarded as the “greatest distinction Yorkshire Cycling can bestow”.
The award will be presented at the Yorkshire Cycling Federation luncheon to be held on the 28th February 2010.
