It was a crazy experience racing the Bourain junior world series, I have never experienced racing against that many people all jostling for postion.
Thanks to Ride for Charlie I made the trip to Italy to take part in the final round of the UCI gravel world series. My goal was to try and qualify for the world champs, which I just missed out on, but I’m pleased to have come so close in what was one of the hardest races I’ve done. It was an amazing experience on terrain which was new to me and I’m really grateful for the opportunity
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.
