THE RAYNER FOUNDATION APPLICATION FORM – SEASON 2023
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 to us that they have made provision for their stay. This may include options such as a visa application, a work permit or a residency.
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 2023 season, this means born in the years 2001 to 2004)
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 2023 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.
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 3 months maximum.
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
Any rider must agree to these conditions before accepting support from the Rayner Foundation.
The Rayner Foundation have the right not to pay an individual if they feel the rider has come up short in their commitment and/or providing us with sufficient information required.
