Sport England Warns British Cycling Over Funding

March 22, 2017

 Sport England have warned British Cycling that “more needs to be done” to ease concerns of a negative culture within the organisation.

 The cycling body is due to receive £17m in funding from Sport England, but they have been made aware reform is necessary if the money is to be made available.

 Sport England, which funds grassroots sport, said it wanted cycling’s governing body to “meet the highest standards of governance” first.

Earlier this month, British Cycling chairman Jonathan Browning apologised for ‘failings’ at the organisation.

That followed accusations of bullying and sexism against elite cyclists.

British Cycling says it has started work on an action plan to address problems in the organisation.
