The 2019 ACU Datatag Commitment to Coaching Award was presented on Saturday 26th January at the annual Auto-Cycle Union (ACU) Championship awards evening at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.
The Award is presented in recognition of outstanding commitment to rider coaching at grass roots level motorcycle sport by a non-commercial ACU Club, individual coach or recognised motor-project.
The winner of the 2019 Award is Bryan Puckett of Trials Training in Wales for his tireless hard work and involvement in Project 2000 which he has managed since a successful bid for funds from Sport Wales in 1999.
Upon receiving the Award Bryan said that he saw the Award as recognition for not him alone but also his dedicated team of coaches saying:
“Like me, all volunteers, coaches and club members give up their time for our Trials Training Wales because we are all passionate about the value of grass roots training. I am so honoured to collect this award which gives recognition to the club coaches and volunteers, all of who give of their time to make it such a success.”
The Award was presented to Bryan by Datatag’s Strategic Alliance Manager Dave Luscombe, who commented:
“It’s a real honour to present this Award to someone deserving like Bryan; a man who has dedicated himself to the support of young people who share his passion for trials. After almost two decades Bryan, supported by his team of dedicated volunteers is still the driving influence in his club which in turn continues to positively impact on the lives of so many local young people”
