Sir Chris Hoy, Sir Dave Brailsford and Chris Boardman all present

This year's Champions of CycleSport Dinner, supported by Wiggle, raised over £185,000 for childrens' charity Action Medical Research.

The dinner, held at London’s Hurlingham Club on Thursday night, attracted a large number of cycling stars including Sir Chris Hoy, Chris Boardman MBE, Sir Dave Brailsford, Jody Cundy MBE, Sean Kelly, Roger Hammond, Ross Edgar, Andy Tennant, Yanto Barker and Hannah Barnes.

Sky News anchor Dermot Murnaghan hosted the evening with TV medic Dr Dawn Harper giving the opening speech and BBC commentator Simon Brotherton conducting the live auction for cycling kit. Up for grabs was a day to ride with Team Sky in Mallorca, a signed Pinarello Dogma 2 Team Sky bike and a signed painting of Sir Chris Hoy, among other sought after items.
