Every year the Sports Journalists' Association, who the 600-plus members include sports writers, broadcasters, photographers and sub-editors, gather to honour the sports people that have made the news in the last year. The year marked the 60th Anniversary of the awards and were held at The Brewery in London.

Darren won the Bill McGowran Trophy for disabled sport, but was not the only cyclist honoured, Chris Hoy won the Sportsman Award, Great Britian Cycling won the Team Award, Rebecca Romero won the UK Sport Award and Jason Kenny won the Peter Wilson Award for international newcomer.

This year Children In Need takes place on the 14th November 2008. Team Midland Racing have organised a 24 Hour Cycling marathon, transporting Pudsey Bear round the Calshot Velodrome. This is not a task for a single rider, there will a number of teams. Each team leader, dressed in yellow, will carry Pudsey on their handle bars for an hour before the teams switch.

The marathon starts on Thursday 13th at 22:00. One of the teams is the GB Paralympic Team, consisting of Darren Kenny and Simon Richardson. They have the honour of carrying Pudsey between 18:00-19:00 (that is 6pm - 7pm in old money) on the 14th.
