Sharples Debuts for GB

Tom Sharples made his GB Junior team debut at the Apeldoorn International last weekend. He travelled out with a National squad that included his old WW Academy teammate, Oli Stockwell.

Tom took part in 4 sprint events over the weekend. His best result was in a nail-biting team sprint where they sat in 3rd place until the end of contest, when they were narrowly knocked down to 4th place by France.

Both riders will compete in the HSBC UK National Track Championships this weekend along with a few other familiar names from the Welwyn Track League and recent Youth Ominums held at Gosling Sports Park. Sadly we can’t find details of any TV coverage this year but we’ll keep a look out.
