Ollie at X2O Trofee at Kortrijk

Last weekend I was lucky enough to get out to belgium for the 2nd round of the X2O Trofee at Kortrijk. It was my first race in Belgium this year and a really cool experience on a unique course. Really hard racing which gave me lots of experience to use going forward. Massive thanks to Ride for Charlie for funding the trip and all the opportunities they give to British riders

Joel heads to Ireland and Belgium

With the support from Ride For Charlie I was able to race in Ireland in October and Belgium last weekend. I gained confidence and experience after achieving my first UCI win over in Ireland as well as a 13th place in Belgium on a super techy course. I loved and really enjoyed both races and can’t wait to get back out there. Thanks again to Sarah and Nick for everything you do for the sport!

First C1 and World Cup for RÓISÍN

I recently travelled to Belgium for my first C1 and World Cup of the season in Neil and Dendermonde. The courses were a lot more technical than anything I’ve raced this season and the conditions were just insane! Really happy to get in the top 10 u23 on Saturday and I learnt a lot about racing at this level over the weekend.

Seb does the double

I recently travelled down to Belgium for a double race weekend at Ruddervoorde Superprestige and Maasmechelen. I really enjoyed both courses as they had loads of different features that we don’t have in the UK like the sand bank at Ruddervoorde. I definitely struggled on that so I might have to get some sand practice done before I race abroad again😅. All in all my results progressed through the weekend and it’s nice to see some shape coming through as the season continues.

Fraser makes the trip to Belgium

Thankyou ride for Charlie by giving me the amazing opportunity to go and race in Belgium, where we did 2 races, one on Wednesday at Maldegem and the other race on Sunday was at Ardooie, these 2 courses couldn’t have been more different the first race was on a fast technical course, but Ardooie was one of the most muddy sloppy coarses I’ve raced on, thankyou so much ride for Charlie on this fantastic experience.

Cat visits Belgium

“With the help of Ride For Charlie I recently went over to Belgium to race two elite women’s CX races. Racing up with the elites helped me gain more invaluable experience of racing abroad and was great prepation for the european championships which I competed in the following weekend. This trip wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing support that RFC provides. Thank you to Nick and Sarah for all your hard work.”

Dec races in Belgium

I really enjoyed the trip because it gave an opportunity to go race in Belgium with a good group of people there to support us and gave lots of new knowledge on racing and how you have to adapt when going abroad to race. Thank you to all that helped and to Ride for Charlie for funding this, it helped us all.
