Nicky McGavin seeks sponsors for a cyclo race as part of this year’s Bike Rally.

Former London lawyer and trademark attorney Nicky McGavin, now manager of the Angkor Wat Bike Rally, has hit the ground running and is looking for funding to boost this year's event. She's pinning her hopes on an innovate addition to this year's rally, a cyclo race. "This will help create more of an atmosphere. I'm trying to get bars, restaurants and hotels to sponsor the cyclos because I think an inter-bar race would be great fun." Nicky said she'll be buying the cyclos from Phnom Penh at about $100 each, freight them to Siem Reap, and then after the race lease them to tourists. Right now she's in talks to determine whether importing cyclos will infringe any local laws.
