Success Stories

See how our funding helps

Emily Heads to Switzerland

I went over to switzerland to get a race in before the end of the cross country season. It was a bit of a shock to the system considering I hadn’t raced in ages because of lockdown.

Jenson competes at International CX

After competing in my first ever elite international cyclocrosss races I couldn’t be happier with my performance, and my progression during my first year as an U23. This opportunity to compete in Bredene and Baal in Belgium wouldn’t of been possible with out the support and funding of rideforcharlie.

Tom RFC in Belgium

Thank you so much for supporting me so that I was able to go over to race in Belgium. It was one of the best experiences, racing against many of the top names in the sport and with thousands of spectators lining the course it was crazy but absolutely incredible.

Callum riding for Charlie

All these races were a great experience for me and I’m extremely lucky to have been able to ride in Charlie’s memory and with funding from the charity.

RFC at Vlaamse Cyclocross

On the Saturday evening we raced the LRC Cup in Vichte which was floodlit! The course was really good & went through the noisy beer tent (which was where the hurdles were placed)

Belgium CX with Corran

On the way home after a great week of racing in Belgium. I competed in 3 races: Superprestige Diegem, Ethias Cross Bredene and GP Sven Nys in Baal. Happy to have finished the week with a 21st, 4th and 9th place junior and loads of experience gained.

Waaslandcross With Joe

On the weekend before Christmas I raced Waaslandcross in Belgium. I loved the close and fast racing which is different to the UK. I was gridded back row of 77 riders and moved up to finish 35th, riding in the spirit of my good friend Charlie.
