Chris Boardman said of the Awards, “Cycling Weekly runs through all of our lives. This magazine has been in our house since I was a child. The industry has been crying out for an event like this and it is fitting that Cycling Weekly are the ones to do it.”

Sir Bradley Wiggins said, “I’ve got a lot of nostalgia for Cycling Weekly. And the institution that it is has bought the crowds. It’s nice to be here and to be part of it, and it’s about the people who have succeeded in the sport who they’re celebrating tonight.”

Head of Market, Sean Igoe, said: “After the huge success of last year’s inaugural awards we cannot wait to make this year’s even bigger and better. I’d like to extend a big thank you to our partners for last year and look forward to working with you again for 2019.”
