"Congratulations to all the winners of the first BikeBiz Awards. And thanks to the industry judges; I think they picked the right winners," said BikeBiz executive editor Carlton Reid.

"Sadly, not everybody could walk away with an award, but whether a company won or not, the breadth of excellent entries showed me that the bike industry is teeming with talent, not all of it latent. We Brits are getting better at shouting about our skills and successes, and the BikeBiz Awards are all about rewarding companies and people for the passion and hard work that was so evident from the nominations."
