Alasdair Hooper hosts a BMX Special with British Cycling athlete, and World Class Programme member, Charlotte Worthington.
The last 12 months have proved to be quite a year for the 22-year-old from Manchester.
Making the Games is Charlotte’s long term goal but there is plenty more to achieve in the short term – both in terms of workload and perfecting her skills.
With the discipline’s inclusion at the Olympics bound to increase its coverage, Charlotte is also making waves in a sport widely considered a man’s world.
While peoples’ perceptions may be geared towards the man’s side of BMX, Charlotte is showing everyone that the girls are just deserving of their place in the spotlight.
