The riders

We have 18 riders taking on the challenge of completing the 535-mile 2022 UK Red Empire State 500, including one current Women’s Super League player and four former men’s Super League stars.

Our current player is Tara Moxon of Leeds Rhinos, who is joined by the sport’s most-capped player of all time, Adrian Morley, ex-GB, Leeds and England centre Keith Senior, former Bradford and GB three-quarter Nathan McAvoy and Warrington legend Paul Wood.

The other riders are Kevin Walton, Neville Smith, Neil Farrow, Simon Dunkerley, Jimmy Bray, Tim Ward, James Elston, Chris Irwin, Mark Bargh, Paul Henshaw, Shannon Nix, Steve Smethurst and John Ledger.

The ride has a three-strong dedicated support team of Catherine Maddy, Tracey Barr and Steve Dighton.
