As part of UK Sport’s funding strategy for Tokyo 2020, British Cycling has been informed that the decision has been made to make a targeted and reduced investment in our cross-country mountain bike and BMX programmes.
Consequently from April 2017, UK Sport will no longer fund the women’s BMX and men’s cross-country mountain bike elements of the world class programme.
The world class programme, with the broader British Cycling organisation, are working through the impact and ramifications of this decision by UK Sport and are seeking alternative sources of funding to keep these two programme elements functioning to the highest possible standard under the circumstances.
It is British Cycling’s belief that we have a group of talented riders in both the disciplines and we will do everything possible to help them achieve their potential.
Further updates on this situation will be provided in due course.
