34 years ago I was forced out of a promising professional cycling career with a back injury. I have been inspired back into racing again by the introduction of world championships for the older age categories! My fitness feels good, my back feels better, so why not. We need challenges in life! The over 60 Masters cyclo cross appeals to me so I have got back into serious training. The first season back was a bit of a shock to the system but by the end of the season I was beginning to feel as if I was really competing. It is now only 5 weeks to the championship and I am feeling very motivated
I hope though that what I am doing might inspire others to realise it is not too late at 60 to have a 'second wind' at something!
I have decided my pain will be someone else’s gain too. I am raising funds to support the not for profit company ‘Ride for Charlie’. Charlie Craig was a young cyclist who tragically died in his sleep at the age of 15. Set up in his honour by his family, Ride for Charlie aims to support young cyclists who are or would have been inspired by Charlie's love of off-road cycling.
I hope you will give generously and thanks in advance for your support!
