Young Rider Funding

Holmfirth Cycling Club has a short but proud history of developing young riders to compete at a high level. We hope to be able to continue this in future years taking into account the needs and aspirations of all young riders within our club. 

Recently, the club has been able to give limited financial support to young riders taking part in national competitions. This has assisted a small number of riders in gaining success at national level and beyond. The committee now feel that it is time for review and so this scheme will end on 29th February 2020. A new scheme will shortly be announced. 

In a Nutshell...


  • Funding is provided for travel, accommodation and entry fees for specific national events. The award of funding will be made at the discretion of the club committee on a quarterly basis.

  • A claim form is to be completed by the rider following the event, listing costs incurred and results.

  • An award can be made up to 50% of the costs incurred, and up to a maximum value of £100 per event.





  1. Riders must be 1st claim members of Holmfirth CC and must compete in club kit

  2. New members will not be eligible for funding until the 2nd quarter of their membership

  3. Applications for funding must be made on the official claim form no later than the quarterly claim deadline.

  4. Eligible travel expenses are for return journeys from the Holmfirth area to the event.

  5. Only events listed below will be eligible for funding.

  6. The claim form can be used for multiple events if they are within the same quarter.

  7. Multi-day events such as stage races or track championships will count as a single event (ie awards are limited to £100 for the full event, not £100 per day).

  8. There is no guarantee of funding and awards are completely at the discretion of the club committee.
