I think I’ve just about recovered from an amazing weekend in Hamburg winning the Special Olympics race. Thank you so much to Ride for Charlie for being amazing supporters and giving me money to help me to race abroad for the first time.
I raced in the U17 race at Balegem, Belgium on 17 December. It was a single year age category race. I was gridded at the back and I had to fight my way through the field for the whole race.
I had an absolutely wicked time taking part in the Boom cyclocross race in Belgium! The race was fast but definitely had some slo bits which felt like 90% climbs but made for good challenge.
With Ride For Charlies help I was able to race Superprestige Neil, Dendermonde Elite World cup and Troyes U23 World Cup this was my first Belgium block of the season and started well with 21st at Neil and a 20th at Troyes. I am very grateful for RFC support.
Thanks so much to Ride for Charlie for supporting me racing Koppenbergcross. I knew the very muddy course would suit me well and was super excited for the race.
Massive thank you to rideforcharlie for support in getting me to my first World Cup in Dublin. Wasn’t the best of days, finishing 22nd after numerous crashes on the start and not feeling 100%.
Massive thank you for the ride for Charlie support to help me race for GB at Dublin World Cup. It was a super tough race against the best riders in the world. I gained loads of experience and confidence and I’m super happy I was able to race this.
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.
