Cyclist Matty seeded 10th in National Youth circuit series
Matty Cole, in Year 11, has been cycling competitively since he was fourteen and through his determination and commitment he is currently seeded 10th overall in the National Youth A Boys Circuit Series. This is a terrific achievement, especially given that he has had two crashes and sustained some injuries during the series. Matty has already completed four races and has three remaining before the competition ends in September.
In addition, during August and September, Matty is entered into a number of National Time Trials with varying distances and will proudly be racing under Richmond School as his team.
For the National Circuit Series Matty races for Triology Man Health Team, a local company run by Andy Sedgwick based at Ellerton near Scorton and for his National Times Trials he races for Team Bottrill from Nottingham. He’s a member of British Cycling too and during the winter months, Matty competes in a Cyclo Cross event, another part of his pathway to becoming a professional cyclist.
Matty is exceptionally dedicated to his sport and his ambition is to race professionally. He can train anywhere from one to four hours each day, depending on his training plan which includes long rides up and down the Dales, attending British Cycling Development Training Sessions or setting up his bike on the Turbo Trainer. Matty has always been passionate about cycling from an early age and is a great role model for younger students. When he was ten years old, he joined Richmond Triathlon Club, following in the footsteps of his dad who was also a member of the club.
We wish Matty the very best of luck for his multiple competitions over the summer and look forward to catching up with him at the end of September. In the meantime, you can follow Matty HERE
