Glasdon are pleased to announce our sponsorship of the 2016 Lewis Balyckyi Glasdon Crit Series. The first round of the 18 Crits race series takes place at the UCLAN Sports Arena in Preston on Thursday 31st March 2016, with the series finishing on Thursday 28th July 2016.
All proceeds from these British Cycling events will be going to The Lewis Balyckyi Trust Fund, which was created as a lasting tribute to Lewis Balyckyi, a promising young cyclist, who showed enormous potential by moving up through the British Cycling rankings. Lewis was the U16 National Circuit Champion and was chosen to ride for Great Britain with the British Cycling Olympic Talent Team where he won a respectable 3rd place. Lewis was due to move to France at the end of January 2011 to continue his dream by racing for a semi-professional cycling team, but while out on a training ride on 18th January 2011, was tragically killed in a road traffic accident.
The Lewis Balyckyi Trust Fund was created to keep Lewis’ dream alive by helping other aspiring young cyclists to reach their potential. The fund also runs road safety awareness events and donates to the NW Air Ambulance. To find out more about the Lewis Balyckyi Trust Fund visit here.
