The Play Sports Network (PSN) has announced the appointment of Manon Lloyd as the newest presenter of its road cycling channel, Global Cycling Network (GCN). Founded in 2013, GCN is home to ‘the world’s largest and fastest-growing road cycling community’, currently attracting over 50 million video content views per month.
Manon Lloyd brings her in-depth knowledge of the velodrome and years of experience on the road to the channel, working alongside co-presenters including Simon Richardson, Dan Lloyd and James Lowsley-Williams.
Manon’s impressive palmarès lists multiple World and European medals on the track. At the 2016 UCI Track World Cup, she took home a gold medal riding for Team GB in the team pursuit and won the madison in a successful partnership with Olympic and Commonwealth gold medal winner Katie Archibald. She is an accomplished road racer too, having ridden for the professional UCI Women’s Cycling Team Drops prior to her appointment with GCN.
Manon presented her first GCN video on 1st January 2020. Fans can expect to see her taking on a number of challenges in her new role as a presenter for the channel, including Rad Race’s Last Wo/Man Standing event in February.
Joining the GCN presenting team, Manon Lloyd said “I’m thrilled to be starting a new chapter as a presenter with GCN and can’t wait to share the experience I’ve gained through racing at the highest level. This is the perfect opportunity for me now that I’ve finished my professional road cycling career as I’ve always had an interest in presenting. I’m looking forward to working with, and learning from, some of the best.”
Simon Wear, Founder and CEO of Play Sports Group (parent company of Play Sports Network), said “I am very pleased to welcome Manon to the Global Cycling Network. Ensuring we have a roster of well-informed presenters for our viewers has always been our number one priority, and Manon certainly fits the bill. A rider who’s won a UCI Track World Cup gold medal in a gruelling discipline such as the madison is truly someone special so we’re very lucky to have her on board.”
