Vote for which rider gets £1,000 sponsorship for charity
But now we need you, the Roo Community, to help us pick which rider gets a £1,000 donation towards their fundraising. The other four will get £500 each plus goodies to help them with their challenge!
Maybe you think they’re completing a great event, or that the charity they’re supporting means a lot to you as well. Take a look below and tell us which one gets your vote here.
Voting closes on the Friday 23 February.
