Cycling: Tyler Hannay receiving Rayner Foundation backing for new season

Manxman 'happy and honoured' to have support

Manx cyclist Tyler Hannay is set to receive some important charitable backing for the upcoming new season.

The Rayner Foundation - a cycling charity - has confirmed it will be offering support again to the Island-born competitor for the 2023 season.

The organisation aims to support young cyclists from the UK who want to race in Europe and encourage under-represented groups to engage and succeed in the sport.

In a post on social media, Hannay says he feels 'happy and honoured' to be supported by the foundation.

Hannay is the currently Isle of Man record holder for the 25-mile time trial.

He'll compete with Italian-based U23 cycling team, Mastromarco Sensi Nibali for the new season.
