Houston riders

Five riders from Telford BMX club have qualified for this year’s UCI BMX World Championship in America. Wrekin Riders BMX Club coach and chairman Kieran Edwards, along with members Chelsey Barnett, aged 12, Erin Marsh, 10, Eddie Smallman, 10, and Peyton Collier, 9, have all qualified for the main event to be held in Houston, Texas in May.

The riders all train at the track in Dawley and have travelled across the UK during 2019 in the British BMX Series. Kieran said, “Every one of the riders who qualified have worked extremely hard over the year. It has been a joy to watch them train hard and develop so much in a short space of time.”
