At 10am on 10th February 2022, 100 cyclists will leave Murrayfield Stadium with the match ball for the Doddie Weir Cup. Their aim will be to get to the Principality Stadium in Cardiff in time for the KO of the Wales V Scotland match 50 hrs and over 500 miles later. Among their number will be many well known names from British rugby over the last 30 years. Amongst others Mike Teague from England, Shane Williams from Wales, a host of Scottish caps, as well as heroes of the cycling world in Mark Beaumont and even for a few miles Sir Chris Hoy himself.
All have been inspired by their old teammate/opponent, Doddie Weir, and his fight against MND. And we will all be cycling for 2 days along cold and dark winter roads to raise funds for his My Name'5 Doddie Foundation.
We will all be decked out in Doddie's tartan and are looking for support for our cause as we travel. All money will go direct to MN5D Foundation, and into research to find effective treatments for this dreadful disease. The cyclists will be covering all the costs of their own ride and support vehicles themselves. MN5DF has ploughed £6.5m into MND research in the last 4 years, and we hope that a breakthrough in treatment will be just round the corner, in time for Doddie, and to help the countless future victims of MND.
