I started riding twelve months ago, just riding around Cannock Chase.
I was riding but wanting to get faster on follow the dog.
I met Ben, started to ride with him and getting faster.
We went out alot over Cannock Chase aroung all the natural trails, which was nice and different.
Ben told me about Nick Popham And xxracetraining.co.uk about doing coaching and training by supporting youth riders in the area.
Me, Nick And Ben all met up and went riding, had a great time meeting nick for the first time.
I Got a XC Frame for christmas and set about building it up.
I wanted to race but wasn't to sure what todo, thats where Nick asked if i wanted to attend the winter classic in xxracetraining.co.uk colours, so i accepted.
And the team was born.
I entered the winter classic on Cannock Chase.
Nick informed me that he would be there with Xx Race Training with a race setup Large gazzebo, jet wash , warm up turbo's emthusiasm n support, so i could warm up and warm down.
It was nice setup on day and helped me get to a 9th on the day.
After racing the winter classic Nick asked if i wanted to be on the xxracetraining.co.uk team, which i happily accepted.
I cant wait for the XC points season to start so i can race on my OnOne XC bike, and get alot of experience from my first season.
XXRACETEAM all the way.
