A massive thank you to RideforCharlie for their support in funding to help me get over to Ireland to race my first elite world cup in Dublin. Not the best race for me with mechanicals placing me 18th, but was an amazing experience and took a lot away from the race. Thanks again the work you do for this sport to help young riders is really appreciated.
Another really good trip out to Belgium. I did 4 races on some really good courses. Unfortunately I had some problems with my hips so I had to come back bit early but still a solid few races. Thanks so much to ride for Charlie for helping me get out to Belgium again and being so supportive!
I spent 11 days abroad and raced 4 times including the European championships, Koppenberg, Ruddervoorde and Massmechelen World Cup. This block was cut short due to injury leaving me with no notable results. I am grateful to Ride For Charlie for supporting me on my journey. Lessons learnt, friends made.
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.
