Tom Stephenson at UCI XC In Lanzarote

"Thanks to the support from Ride for Charlie, I had the opportunity to compete in my first UCI XC stage race. Lanzarote’s unique loose over hard volcanic terrain and sand, in combination with a high level of competition, provided the perfect environment to develop bike handling skills and fast paced group racing tactics. I loved the stage race format and enjoyed using each day’s course profile to my strengths to look for a competitive advantage and gain time on my rivals in the general classification”.

Kim at Club la Santa 4 stage MTB race

Despite the good results and UCI points my biggest win was my hand being pain free for 4 back to back days on the MTB when this time last year it hurt riding on the smooth Calpe roads.
