Team Cystic Fibrosis put pedal to the metal in HollandAugust 2, 2017
Last month, we told you about our sponsorship of Martin Dainty and his son Harrison who are fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
Harrison, who is just 10 years old, rides for Team Cystic Fibrosis, which is the family’s cycling team founded by Martin. He’s currently taking part in the European Tour of Assen in Holland, one of the largest children’s cycling races in the world.
The race brings over 1000 children from 21 countries to compete in a six-day stage race. Our sponsorship helped to fund the team van and their new kit, taking the Wybone name on tour with them!
After two stages of Assen, Harrison finished 11th and 14th and is now placed 14th overall with four stages to go. Team Cystic Fibrosis aims to incite awareness of the condition and raise money to go towards progressive research. Harrison’s older sister Molly has cystic fibrosis and is the inspiration for their team.
Take a look at the photographs Martin has sent us from the event so far, he says: “One thing for sure, the little boy from Barnsley is loving it!”
The Assen tour press team caught up with Harrison and his Dad, as they explain how they’re riding for a reason. Read the story here.
Good luck for the rest of the race Harrison!
