2018 Race Results

2018 was an exciting season for me, having focussed on stepping up to National A Road/Circuit Races and the National Hard Track Endurance League, competing against pro riders that I have admired for years.

I ended 2018 as the highest-ranked Category 1 Road and Track rider in the UK, according to British Cycling rankings, and competed in the HSBC UK National Circuit Series, HSBC UK Grand Prix Series and the HSBC UK National Circuit Race Championships. I achieved 31 race wins and 57 podiums:
