Welsh Champions of 2009 - Gallery
Halfords Bikehut are proud to be supporting the Welsh Championships and its Champions for 2009 with the introduction of a new Welsh Champions jersey. Here is a gallery of the Welsh Champions to date.
Halfords, the UK's leading cycle retailer has joined forces with Welsh Cycling to bring back the Welsh National Champions Jersey, which recognises the achievements of Welsh cyclists.
After a 10-year absence due to lack of funding, riders will once again be able to proudly wear their jerseys in events all over the UK after Halfords stepped in, meaning that the sport can reward its champions with more than just a title.
The Welsh ‘National Champion's' jersey signifies the winning athlete within their event, across the various disciplines of Welsh Cycling. This currently includes Olympic and Commonwealth disciplines of Road (circuit and road race), Mountain Bike (cross country), Track and BMX, along with Champions in Downhill Mountain Biking and BMX on a National level.
The winners will be able to wear their champion's jerseys in events all over the UK and be recognised instantly as the Welsh Champion.
