The Helen100 Trophy was a huge success in 2018 with the first ever Junior Women’s race held at a major international event in Loenhout, Belgium. In conjunction with Golazo, we launched the event with the backing of ‘The Fifth floor’ and a truly international line up of riders set out in front of good spectator numbers for the first race of the day. I’m pleased to confirm I’m now in advanced talks with Golazo to expand the series to 4 events with the addition of an overall classification.
Next season will be the first ever World Championships for Junior Women, something I’ve campaigned for over a number of years. With no Junior Women’s events on the world calendar next season, the Helen100 trophy series could form a key part of many riders preparation for the Worlds to be held in Dubendorf, Switzerland.
The details of which events these junior races will be held at are still to be confirmed as negotiations continue but the key now is securing new partners for the races. Knowing the organisers are keen to make this happen gives us a lot of time to put the right partners in places. We could have one overall partner, or each race can have it’s own sponsor and there has been interest from teams as well as commercial partners already. With costs being relatively low for these events, and sponsorship packages that include video highlights and VIP tickets for the complete day of racing, we hope interest will be high.
