Bill Owen, MBE

The 76-year-old has retired due to ill health, meaning an end for the Abergavenny Festival of Cycling, which ran every year since 2007 until coronavirus forced its cancellation this summer.

Owen was awarded an MBE for services to cycling, which has spanned close to 60 years, and he was also inducted into the British Cycling Hall of Fame in 2016, given a lifetime achievement award by Welsh Cycling in 2013 and has won organiser of the year on several occasions for his beloved Abergavenny Festival of Cycling.
