Following very strong competition at interview, Andy Cosgrove has been appointed as the new regional events officer for the North East region.  Andy starts work today (7th April) with an induction period at BC headquarters in Manchester.  He brings a wealth of experience from national work with the Cycling Time Trials council and is well-known for his involvement in Cyclo-Cross North East. 

Working closely with our recently appointed Regional Competition Administrator, Phil Jack, Andy will work to progress competitive cycling on a number of fronts, from building up our base of volunteer commissaires and other officials, to working to promote women's racing and generally improve standards in the adult side of the sport. 

If you are considering putting something back into the sport and would like to know more about becoming a commissaire, an organiser, judge or accredited marshal, please contact us using the contact tab on the website. 

The regional board is very pleased to welcome Andy to work alongside Phil.  Together with the other full-time British Cycling staff in the North East (Dan Small, Regional Coaching and Development Manager, Alex McLean, Regional Go-Ride Coach and Peter Riddell, Recreation Manager) we are now up to full strength and looking forward to a period of stability and progress.
