British National Road Race Championship Winner, Pfeiffer Georgi, said: "I am proud to be an ambassador for the Champions of CycleSport Dinner which is undoubtably the best event in the cycling social calendar. Action Medical Research do amazing work to help children affected by disease and disability and every year you hear personal stories which always make you want to donate. The money that is raised is so important, and it’s an honour to attend alongside interesting people who share a love of cycling."
