Libby at UCI Clonmel Cross

This weekend I raced the UCI Clonmel Cross in Ireland and it was my first muddy and technical race of the season. Last year I rode this race in very sunny and dry conditions but this year it was good to face the mud! Racing in the elite women's category it was great to come 3rd and then 1st junior. This race for me wouldn't have been possible without the help and support of Ride For Charlie - thank you.

Joe at the Clonmel UCI Cross

Big Thankyou to RideForCharlie for supporting my trip to race in Ireland at the Clonmel UCI Cross. The first muddy and slippy race of the season for me. The conditions changed every lap due to the weather making it very slippery in places. I am happy to come away with 5th place too after a good battle! This trip wouldn’t have been possible without the support from RideForCharlie

Hannah at UCI Cross Clonmel

I had a brilliant time racing in Ireland at the UCI Cross Clonmel, the course was lots of fun and I had a good race coming second junior and fifth overall in the women’s elite category. Many thanks to Ride For Charlie for the support.

Jenson at the Clonmel UCI Cross

The Clonmel UCI Cross was a great event, my first time racing in Ireland so it was a great experience that I enjoyed in some tough conditions, I finished 3rd overall, after a few crashes and mechanicals I'm pleased with how it went. It would not of been possible without the support from RideforCharlie.

Joe at the ETU Multi sport championships

Thank you RideForCharlie for helping to make my trip to Bilbao possible. I have had a great time racing the cross duathlon at the ETU Multi sport championships where I came 6th in my category and 23rd out of 130 across the field. I have waited 2 years for the championships to go ahead after them being cancelled twice due to covid so it was great for it to finally go ahead. It was a very tough race with a steep 8k run first, followed by a 20k MTB route which consisted of long climbs and technical descents and then finally finishing on a 3k run. I had a lot of fun and gained experience that I can use in future races.

Tom at the Mountain Bike Marathon worlds

"Mountain Bike Marathon worlds In Denmark was a great experience and adventure. It was my first time in Denmark, first time racing for GB and my first time racing my MTB outside the uk.

Tom at the UCI MTB Marathon World Championships

I had a great time in Denmark at the UCI MTB Marathon World Championships thanks to the support of Ride for Charlie. Racing at this level has long been as ambition of mine and it exceeded all expectations…from the course practice with fellow team GBR riders in the days prior to lining up with world’s best from fifteen other nations on race day. It was an honour to compete in memory of both Charlie and Rab Wardell. Their immense amount of passion and love for the sport provided extra motivation to leave it all out there between the race tape.

Harvey at the Enduro World Series

This year I have had an amazing time racing the Enduro World Series 100 thanks to ride for Charlie. The first trip saw me head to the Austria / Slovenia border for round 2 of the EWS100 where I managed to finish 3rd! After this we travelled to Val Di Fassa in Italy where I managed to improve further with a second place in round 3. For the second trip we travelled out to Switzerland and during practice for the penultimate round of the EWS I unfortunately had a crash resulting in a broken arm. The experience I have had this year racing will stay with me forever and it would not have been possible without ride for Charlie. Thankyou!

Joe at the World Cup

Val Di Sole was my first ever World Cup race. I had such a good time! I spent most of the week out there, learning the course and exploring the local area. The race itself was amazing - the crowds were crazy and the course was super tough. A lot taken away from the trip, so a massive thank you to Ride For Charlie for supporting the adventure!

Rideforcharlie Youth European Championships Team

We would like to start by thanking Ride For Charlie for supporting us at European Youth MTB Championship in Capriasca. The experience was incredible for all members of our team, although the learning curve of a new event is always steep, every one of us can come away saying we learnt loads, raced hard and most importantly loved every moment of it.
