British Cycling has been nominated for Sports Governing Body of the Year in the 2013 Sports Industry Awards.

Also nominated are England Hockey, British Horseracing Authority, UK Athletics, RFL, and the British Olympic Association.

British Cycling’s chief executive, Ian Drake, said:

“The past year has undoubtedly been the biggest and the best in British Cycling’s history so it is fantastic to hear that we have been nominated for this prestigious award.

"Cycling is the sport that redefined our national sporting identity last year – we saw the first British winner of the Tour de France and took 16 gold medals home from London 2012 but, equally, we have seen some amazing achievements at the grassroots. British Cycling reached its target of getting one million more people on bikes a year early, almost two million people are now riding regularly.

"Our membership is booming with over 65,000 members, and over 20,000 people are now taking part in competitive events. We are also making real strides in representing this growing membership on issues that matter, like better provision for cyclists on our roads."
