All eyes will be on Tre Whyte this weekend, as the ambassador of the Go-Ride programme takes to the berms at the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup.
Selected to represent Great Britain alongside current world champion, Liam Phillips, Tre will be racing at his home track at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester.
Tre became an official Go-Ride ambassador earlier this year, as an academy rider on the Great Britain Cycling Team who has progressed from Peckham Challengers BMX Go-Ride Club.
British Cycling’s Director of Coaching, Education and Development, John Mills, said: “It’s excellent to see Tre Whyte progressing from a Go-Ride Club onto the world stage. The UCI BMX Supercross World Cup is a fantastic event and the performance of riders such as Tre will undoubtedly inspire even more young people to get involved with cycling at their local Go-Ride Club.”
Tre Whyte said: “It’s going to be a fantastic summer of cycling, not only for BMX, but with events such as the Tour De France and Commonwealth Games taking place in the UK. No matter what discipline, Go-Ride Clubs are a brilliant way for kids get involved in cycling and turn that inspiration into participation.”
