Among the guests were, Geraint Thomas, Dani King, Sir Chris Hoy, Rochelle Gilmore, David Millar, Sir Dave Brailsford, Chris Boardman, Alex Dowsett, Stephen Roche and many others, to celebrate the $400,000 (£270,00) the event raise for the charity – Action Medical Research.
British TV personalities, Ned Boutling and Dermot Murnaghan, hosted the evening’s entertainment, which included interviews with the guests and auctions for a selection of unique cycling memorabilia.
Some of the items for auction included, one-off Maserati Cipollini BOND bike, which sold for £5000, a Tour de France yellow jersey signed by Chris Froome and a painting of Geraint Thomas, signed by the rider, which sold for £4000.
Event ambassador Chris Boardman said: “I’m so proud to be the ambassador for the Champions of CycleSport Dinner, raising funds for Action Medical Research – not only is it a fantastic evening for an extremely worthwhile cause but they also lead the pack when it comes to organising great cycling events.”
Olympic gold medallist Hoy said: “It’s great to be back at the Champions of CycleSport Dinner and I’m proud to support such an impressive celebration of all that’s great about cycling – both in the UK as a whole and in particular the rides that the charity has put on over the past year.”
