The 13-year-old cyclist, from Hayfield, is a pupil at Hope Valley College. He won a bronze medal in the Cyclo Cross National Championship 2014/15 season and finished third overall in the series. He also achieved second in the last round of the Cross Country Mountain Bike National Series and gained third place overall.

Charlie says: "Through this winter I am training for next year's XC mountain bike session and incorporating the cyclocross session into my training to help me keep on track of my performance.

"One of my goals for this year was to gain a place on the Olympic development apprentice programme which is part of the British cycling performance pathway, and I have just recently achieved this.

"My main goal for next year is to finish top five in one of the national point's race as a first year under-16.

"In the future, my goal is to compete in a world class mountain bike race as a junior and hope to be considered to continue to move up in the British cycling Olympic pathway towards a future Olympics."
