BERKELEY-BASED cyclist Etienne Georgi has been selected for Great Britain’s Olympic Talent Team.
The 15-year-old, a Year 10 student at The Castle School in Thornbury and team member of Giant CC Halo Films, is one of just 30 riders in the UK to be brought into the first stage of British Cycling’s talent development programme.
Over the next year Georgi will have access to the same coaching that has turned Britain’s cyclists into World and Olympic champions.
“I know it is going to be hard work but to be part of the GB team is very exciting,” said Georgi.
He will attend the team’s first three-day camp at Newport’s velodrome during October half term.
