Charlotte On Track in BMX Competition
20 November 2015
During half term, Charlotte Meek in Year 7 won the first round of the Manchester Indoor Winter Series BMX race. In this race she competed against many of the riders whom she will face in the National Series next year where she rides in the Girls age 11-12 category. The Manchester track is the only indoor BMX track in the UK and is used for training by the British BMX team, it is an international standard track designed for elite riders which makes Charlotte's success even more amazing.
Charlotte is especially pleased as this is the first time she has been placed first in a final; although, she has achieved good results in the past, including being second in the 2014 British Championship, she has never won!
Charlotte has been racing competitively at national level for three years and has qualified to represent Great Britain at the World Championships for the last two years. Her team, J&R Bicycles, were the National Champions last year.

Well done Charlotte!
