Bradley McGee's manager Kerry Ruffels has been elected the president of Cycling NSW for a two year term at Cycling NSW's Annual General Meeting on Tuesday night. Mr Ruffels has a long association with cycling and sport in NSW, having previously worked for the Australian Olympic Committee leading into the Sydney Olympic Games.
One of Mr Ruffels first duties as president was to appoint a new Chief Executive Officer to Cycling NSW. Kevin Young was appointed to a three year term.
Mr Ruffels said that one of the more immediate challenges faced by Cycling NSW is to lift the profile of cycling within NSW and Australia. A priority will be to secure sponsors and venues that will provide the NSW public the opportunity of seeing more of the state's star cyclists, such as Olympians Brad McGee, Graeme Brown, Stephen Wooldridge and Katherine Bates competing in events in Sydney and in other regional centres across NSW.
