Next year Poole Wheelers will be supporting the local charity, AboutFace, which provides support for patients who have been diagnosed or living with head and neck cancer. Fellow wheeler, Robin Darch, already organised a ride in support on 17th November in aid of this and the club will continue to support in the coming year.

Isabel Sharp won the 10-mile National Youth Championship at the RTTC finals staged in Norfolk on Saturday 8th September! Not content with just being National Champion, Isabel also clocked a new the GHS Championship Record… This is an extraordinary achievement from a rider who is still only 13!
Poole Wheelers also took home the team price with Tom, Jamie and Isabel, who all also won their respective age groups. Their combined winning time of 1:01:52 was also a new GHS Championship Record. That’s a lot of winning!
Isabel Sharp: 22:04 1st 13 year old, 1st overall girl and 39th overall in the combined results Thomas Day: 19:32 1st 16 year, 2nd overall Jamie Whitcher: 20:16 1st 14 year old, 9th overall
Tom was only one second off the winner…
“I felt strong through the whole race and was pushing for a PB however when I hit the monster head wind on they way back I knew I had to dig deep”, recalls Isabel. “When I saw my time at the end I was so pleased. I didn’t even realise I had won overall until my friend told me. Definitely my best achievement to date.”
Jamie said that “during the TT I had no idea how I was doing, I had no one to chase and I couldn’t see my Garmin but I felt really good and pushed hard all the way. When I sat up at the finish to see my time I was really pleased, very happy with my age cat win and overall result.”
This caps off an extraordinary summer for our youth riders, who have been competing in a range of races in the UK and abroad. Jamie even won the Kids-Tour Berlin 2018, a four stage race, as part of the international Cannibal Team. After a fantastic performance in individual and Team time trials, a road race and a criterium race, Jamie won the Yellow Jersey and Cannibal Team won the Team Classification!
Congratulations from everyone in Poole Wheelers to all our youth riders!
