A big thanks to Ride For Charlie. I had a great time racing the famous Koppenberg CX. Although I didn’t get the result I wanted due to a few mechanical issues and crashes, it was a really great experience and I learned lots.
Recently I was able to make the trip to Belgium thanks to the support of rideforcharlie. I raced the super prestige in ruddervoode and the brutal koppenbergcross. I did these races last year as a junior but it was a completely new experience racing as a first year u23.
Recently I raced Koppenbergcross in Belgium which was such an amazing experience once again after I went to the same event the previous year. The crowds were massive and the racing was a completely different level which helps to push me even further.
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.
