We know that Cycling in all its forms simply couldn’t exist without the volunteers, and to give back to them, British Cycling will be spearheading the #cyclingsaysthanks campaign throughout Volunteers’ Week starting today.

Many of Great Britain’s top riders will be saying thank you in various ways over the next seven days, and we have a number of prizes which we will be giving away to volunteers

Do you want to say thank you to a cycling volunteer that's made a difference to you?

Cycle Speedway - Battle of Britain

The second Battle of Britain series starts this Sunday (22nd April). The 
North & Scotland teams will be making the long journey to Poole, to take 
on the South & South Wales teams.

New junior team manager Alisdair Foxley, of Edinburgh, takes charge of 
the team, in the first match at 1 pm. Sheffield's Ed Morton is the new 
junior captain for the season. The North & Scotland juniors finished 2nd 
in last year's junior table and the region are fielding another strong 
squad this year, with riders from five clubs turning out on Sunday. 
Lining up for the North & Scotland on Sunday, along with Ed Morton will 
be Astley & Tyldesley's Max Evans, Bury trio Kaysar Mohammadi, Adam 
Turnbull and Adam Taylor, Edinburgh's Lewis Foxley, along with Stockport 
duo Michael Preston and Devon Campbell. The race format has changed this 
year, as the juniors will be using the senior formula of eight rider 
teams, with 18 heats, plus 2 nominated heats.

The seniors will take to the track at 2.30 pm. Team manager, Mike Hack, 
of Astley & Tyldesley, is still recovering from surgery, so Sheffield's 
Luke Morton takes on the team manager's role at Poole. The Captain Ben 
Higham, of Stockport, is also missing, so Astley & Tyldesley's new 
signing from Swindon, Steve Harris, steps up to be the captain on the 
day. Ironically, Steve was last year's South & South Wales captain. 
Three other Astley & Tyldesley riders are competing on Sunday - Reece 
Pollitt, Pawel Idziorek and Kyle Holland. Stockport's Jake Read will be 
the vice captain on the day, with Bury's Kris Ramsden and Sheffield pair 
Adam Watson and Ed Morton making up a stronger team than last year.
The Women's League commences on 13th May.
Good luck to the North Team on Sunday!
