What's in it for the GHCF
We have a passion for track cycling and we love to share this with the next generation of riders. We also understand that the success of our Youth Cycling Program is key to maintaining rider numbers at a level we can continue to do what we love.
How it works...
Every sponsorship place created is open to application from Junior riders. Allocation of sponsorships can either be done by GHCF or the sponsor. Sponsors can add conditions and additional perks as they see fit such as a minimum number of races, social media presence, photo’s or provide a jersey or kit for them to use etc. as long as these fit in with the program objectives. Successful applicant riders will at minimum be provided with a full season pass and allocated a bike from our rental fleet for the year. The GHCF will facilitate the program and work to match riders and sponsors together.
A rider is unable to continue or meet requirements? In this event the space will be transferred to another rider.
There aren't enough riders? Funds will either be held for riders joining through the year or the following year or allocated to different projects supporting junior cycling at the sponsors discretion.
