Team/Club: Bush Healthcare & British Cycling Talent Team
I‘m 15 years of age and go to school in Wales where I am taking my GCSE’s. My favourite subjects are P.E. and English. I am on the British Cycling Talent Team and hope to progress onto the Olympic Development Programme and then Academy. I am training to be a sprinter and my short term goals are to maintain my current title of U16 Omnium Champion and to gain a National Championship title. My longer term goals are to take part in the commonwealth games and then the Olympics in 2016.
My sponsor is Martin Bush of Bush Healthcare, this is also the club I ride for. Geoff Cooke is the coach who has coached me from the beginning, he has given me the skills, knowledge, courage and the confidence I need to progress onto the British Cycling Programmes. Without Geoff and Martin it would have been difficult for me to achieve what I have in such a short time. Tim Ashfield of Ashfield Cycles is the person I go to locally if I have any problems with my bikes, he offers a great service and is always happy to help with anything I’m stuck with.
My ideal way to relax is to chill out and watch Top Gear!!!!!!!
I will keep you up to date with my season and thoughts on cycling here at Cycling Shorts.
