INDIVIDUAL APPLICATIONS

 

APPLICATIONS FOR FUNDING FOR THE 2024 SEASON ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED.

To apply for funding please download the application form and return to the email address below.

THE RAYNER FOUNDATION APPLICATION CONDITIONS – SEASON 2024

  • The Rayner Foundation was conceived and remains focused on road racing only.

  • Funding support is for the European road racing season only.

  • Individuals must be aware of the complications of living in the European Union and must be able to demonstrate that they have made provision for their stay. This may include options such as a visa application, a work permit or residency.

  • The possession of a European passport is a great benefit, but we do not support any individual who uses an alternative nationality as their primary status. We recognise British Nationality whereby a rider would potentially represent GB in International Competition. If this changes then we reserve the right to suspend funding.

  • Preference will be given to those individuals who can demonstrate that they have made these arrangements.

  • New applicants for funding must be in the under 23 category (for the 2024 season, this means born in the years 2002 to 2005)

  • Existing funded riders can apply for continued support if older than the U23 category subject to progress shown already.

  • Preference will be given to applicants who are either based in Europe or follow a continental race programme outlined by their respective teams, in either case supporting the Rayner Foundation’s principal objective of pursuing a career in a professional cycling team.

  • Priority will be given to applicants who have already secured team placements abroad for the 2024 season.

  • The Rayner Foundation must be the primary source of funding for riders who receive it and must be acknowledge as such, unless discussed and agreed in writing previously. There are other organisations that support riders providing similar programmes, but we feel that it is unfair to align yourselves with more than one organisation. 

  • In addition, a limited number of places are available, subject to the same principles laid out above, for students who are available to compete during the summer. This would be for a maximum period of 3 months.

  • Any offer of support made is subject to the recipient being able to fulfil the principles laid out above. If the situation with regard to COVID 19 (or similar) disrupts the racing programme we reserve the right to withdraw support until the situation normalises.

  • If a rider is unable to live and race abroad with their team due to illness or injury, then funding may be withheld until the situation resolves. 

  • The Rayner Foundation have the right to not pay an individual if they feel the rider has come up short in their commitment and/or providing us with sufficient information required.

  • The Committee of the Rayner Foundation reserves the right in their sole discretion, to select riders to support or not without giving reason.

  • You must agree to these conditions above before accepting support from the Rayner Foundation.

  • Applications open 1st September 2023 and close on 31st October 2023.
