Yorkshire rugby league heavyweights Huddersfield Giants and premium cycle wear brand Fat Lad At The Back are joining forces in May for a 120 mile bike ride, teaming up to raise money in memory of late Giants youth player Ronan Costello.
The Giants participants are raising money for Headway, the charity which provided specialist support to Ronan’s family during the period following his injury and subsequent passing in June last year, having sustained a serious head injury in a match.
Eorl Crabtree, Giants ambassador and former England rugby league star, will lead the pack to Tyneside on the two days ahead of Magic Weekend, with the ride scheduled for 19/20th May.
Participants will wear bespoke cyclewear produced by Fat Lad At The Back, a replica of the Giants’ specially designed commemorative Magic Weekend rugby kit.
Crabtree said: “We are proud to support Headway and are taking on this challenge in memory of Ronan Costello. It is nearly a year since the tragedy and we want to continue to celebrate Ronan’s life.”
