MTB World Championships

Rebecca Leaper

Last week I mentioned in passing that my daughter Rebecca had come over from her home in Spain to compete in the UK National MTB (Mountain Bike) Marathon Championships on the Isle of Man, where she won the Silver Medal. I also mentioned in passing that her next race would be the World MTB Marathon Championships in Italy in September. (See Recent Rides.)

Becky has a World top 10 ranking and will represent GB at the World Championships, however she has no funding from UK Cycling. Apart from her bike and kit from ‘Coluer’ and her wheels from Sixth Element she is entirely self-funded and this is a very costly exercise. She is looking for small sponsorship donations to help fund her expenses in order to attend the World Championships and have the opportunity to compete head to head with the world’s best. You may also like to check out her blog at:

If you feel you can make a donation, however small, please click on the following link and read her story. Every little helps. Thank you.

    Wish I could do more than just cheer from the sidelines…

    Rebecca’s determination is admirable, and I wish I could do more than just offer her my best wishes.

    Thank you both – I’m sure your encouragement is just as welcome. 🙂
