For the 2017 season we are delighted to have Glasdon UK back as headline sponsor of the series and also ID:FS presenting the races.
The 18 week series, hosted by the UCLan Sports Arena in Preston, is aimed at providing the opportunity for Junior and Senior riders (male and female) from in and around the North West to compete on one of the best closed circuits in the country every week through spring and summer.
The series is named in memory of Lewis Balyckyi, a promising young cyclist from Preston who was tragically killed in a road traffic accident in 2011. Since then The Lewis Balyckyi Trust Fund has been established by Lewis's parents, Kevin and Jacqui Balyckyi. The Fund provides funding for up-and-coming riders to enable them to go over and race in Europe and it also works to raise awareness of cycle safety on the roads through the "Look for Lewis" campaign. More information about the Lewis and the Fund can be found at lbtf.org.
All profits from the series will go straight to the Lewis Balyckyi Trust Fund.
