Cycle Sport Pendle rider Georgia Ashworth has been selected as one of British Cycling’s Olympic Development Apprentice riders.

Georgia’s focus on enjoying her riding and racing has lead to the recognition, which will place the Trawden cyclist on the 12-month programme, with assessments every three months.

If she is successful, it can lead to a place in the Olympic Development Academy.

Neil Welsh of CSP said: “Georgia is a fantastic prospect and is going in the right direction, doing brilliantly at national level riding for JLT Condor in the Revolution Future Stars Series

“She’s still young but is well-grounded and a role model for the younger kids at the club.”
