North Wales Crusaders director Mark Jones will cycle to Thatto Heath Crusaders on Saturday for the Steve Prescott Foundation.
Jones will join Thatto Heath Crusaders and Steve Prescott Foundation chairman Mike Denning, as well as fellow Challenge Wembley members Paul Pugh, Dave Howarth, Barry Ford and former St Helens captain Chris Joynt, on the ride.
The group will set off from Queensway Stadium at 8am and make their way up to Crusader Park for the Challenge Cup clash.
Jones said: “I’m a keen cyclist and, when I heard that Mike Denning and his colleagues were cycling to Thatto Heath, I wanted to join in and help raise awareness of their phenomenal challenge that lies ahead.
“Steve Prescott MBE transcended rugby league and was an inspiration to us all.
“I really can’t wait for the game on Saturday as it promises to be a great atmosphere and occasion.”
Challenge Wembley celebrates 10 years since Steve Prescott MBE tackled the epic 950-mile bike ride from Catalans to Windsor Castle, a 26-mile dragon boat down the Thames and finished off by running a half-marathon to Wembley Stadium, delivering the Challenge Cup final ball in time for kick-off.
During this year’s event, 17-year-old Taylor Prescott, the eldest son of Steve, will continue his father’s legacy and follow in his footsteps every step of the challenge.
