The lifetime contribution to cycling award, sponsored by USN, will also be awarded on the night to an individual who has made a lifelong contribution to cycling in Wales.

Anne Adams-King, chief executive officer of Welsh Cycling, said: “I am extremely proud of the achievements of all members of the Welsh cycling community over the last 12 months.

“I know the panel had to make some tough choices during the judging process, but we thank all of our clubs, coaches and volunteers for their contribution to cycling all year round.

“The shortlist of finalists is a credit to Welsh Cycling, clubs and fellow members. All those nominated should be proud that they have been recognised by the Welsh cycling community for their commitment to the sport.

“It will be great to have Wales’ top cyclists and our dedicated clubs and volunteers together to celebrate Wales’ success in cycling.”

The winners will be announced on Saturday, November 7, at the Mercure Holland House Hotel and Spa, Cardiff.
