A team from TAG Catering Equipment will be taking on the Cyclone24 Cycle Challenge in Newport on 20 October, hoping to defend its title from last year and raise £1,250 for charity in the process.
Cyclone24 is the UK’s original 24 hour velodrome cycle challenge event series. It pitches teams against each other over a 24 hour period in a relay format. It’s said to be a real challenge of strength, determination and team spirit. This year it takes place on 20-21 October, at The Geraint Thomas National Velodrome of Wales.
In 2018 a team of six led by TAG project and creative director, Tyron Stephens-Smith, won the overall title, completing a 3,836 laps, equivalent to 959km, breaking the Welsh record for the event in the process.
This year a team from TAG will be re-entering, hoping to defend its title and raise £1,250 for the Velindre Cancer Centre in the process.
Stephens-Smith commented: “The 2018 event was the hardest thing I’ve ever done both mentally and physically.
“Despite the event proving to be a real challenge, we are delighted to be back for 2019 to defend our title and hopefully raise £1,250 for the Velindre Cancer Centre.”
Wales’ Velindre cancer centre provides treatment, care and support to patients and their families. Money raised through fundraisers allows it to support projects over and above those provided by the NHS including ground-breaking research, specialist equipment, nurses and staff training.
Stephens-Smith concluded: “Velindre has been great in helping people close to the team and we are excited to offer support for how fantastic it has been.”
