I have just got back from racing cross Duathlon at the European Championships for the GB Age Group Team in Târgu Mureş, Romania.

I was racing in two races whilst away, in the youth category – an Italian International Series race and a Swiss Bike Cup. In between these, I had the opportunity to train with […]
This last CX season I have made a real step up in my racing by completing the majority of my races in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Thanks to the RideForCharlie fund, I was able to go to Belgium over the Christmas period to ride 4 races in 5 days. The races being: Zolder World Cup, Loenhout, Bredene and Diegem Superprestige.
At the end of December, we went out to race cross in Belgium for the first time to experience what true cyclocross racing is like, racing Brico cross Bredene and Superprestigie Diegem thanks to the help of the @rideforcharlie foundation.

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.
We want to hear from young boys and girls age 14 and above who ride off- road bikes and have been inspired by stories of Charlie and his life.
