“Another great trip to Leogang for my second World Cup of the season. Course was very wet and slippy in practise but dried almost completely out by the race. Didn’t have the best race for me. After a good start, I fell back and struggled on a very steep, energy sapping course. Still great to get another world cup in the books and massive thanks to @rideforcharlie for helping me fund this trip”
I had a really good time out in the Belgium Ardennes racing my first mountain bike stage race, the race lasted 4 days and was full gas from the off with a strong field and very hilly course, I had mixed results in the stages with some punctures on stage 3 costing me time, but finishing off stage 4 with my best ride of the week but absolutely empty. Big thanks to Ride for Charlie for the support to get to the start line. Hope to get back to this race next year.
This year we are able to support 4 teams to the European Youth Chamiponships.
Charlie would of loved this event and was so looking forward to racing in Europe.
I had a great time in Nove Mesto for the 3rd World Cup of the season. I flew out with my dad and spent 4 days in Czech which gave me time to get used to the track
Nove Mesto lived up to its reputation. It was fast fun and had an amazing atmosphere. The race was tough.
Charlie was a special boy who went to sleep on Friday the 20 January and didn’t wake up, he was 15. He left his family and friends in a state of shock and an incredible hole in our hearts. We miss him more every day.
Our aim is to support young off road cyclists,who are or would have been inspired by Charlie to follow in his pedal strokes. Our vision is to allocate funding to self motivated young individuals, who will be appraised for eligibility by the trustees.
