Glinton resident, Georgia Bullard, has been recruited by an elite women’s cycling team. Sixteen year old Georgia is to join Yorkshire based Jadan Weldtite Squad as a first year junior rider and will compete for them in road and track cycling at national and international level this year.
Georgia has been riding with Bourne Wheelers for the last two years. 2016 was her first year riding at a national level, which included competing in the three day North West Youth Tour and several one day races. Her best result was winning the regional Loughborough Campus Criterium in May and finishing 11th at the Hillingdon national series circuit race. She also qualified for the GHS National Youth Time Trial championship, finishing 5th in her age group.
As well as road racing she also competed in the National Youth Track championship at Derby and the London Youth Track League.
Georgia is starting the season with a half-term training camp in Calpe, Spain followed by a team training and sponsors weekend in Manchester at the start of March. Her main goals for the year are based around the national Junior Women’s road race series, particularly one of the prestigious elite women’s races such as the Tour Series or the Women’s Circle Classic.
It promises to be a very busy year for Georgia who on top of her cycling commitments will also sit her GCSE’s this summer too.
Ultimately Georgia’s main ambition is to continue to progress through the junior ranks and use the experience gained to become an established rider with Team Jadan Weldite.
