Below is a copy of the confirmation of Daniel’s invitation to ride for his country.
Congratulations Daniel, a great performance.
Congratulations on being selected to represent Great Britain in the Special Olympics European Summer Games – Cycling Team to be held in Antwerp, Belgium from 13th – 20th September 2014.
The GB Cycling Team is as follows:
Supported by Coach: Andrew Martin
Daniel Weston has recently been putting in some impressive performances. He was competing in the Special Olympics National event (for athletes with learning disabilities) where he received 2 silver medals. The event took place at the Tameside Cycle Circuit in Ashton under Lyme.
7th Place – Conker
(2 races, one win and a seventh mean that Conker has been upgraded to a third category rider, congratulations and let me know when you become a Second cat)
1st Place – Scott Gurnett
(Anybody who knows Scott will know that on a hilly circuit he can mix it with the best in the country as he did on a number of occasions last season. Ilton however is a flat circuit so it now looks like a winter of hard training, whatever the weather, has paid off and Scott has become an all round rider. Congratulations and I hope to be listing many more wins for Scott and Conker this year).
12th Place – Jeremy Summers
(Sorry I don’t have a time for Jeremy but it should be noted that this was achieved after a winter of turbo sessions, very often 2 per day with only two road rides, congratulations to Jeremy)
1st Place – Graham (Conker) Collins
I believe that this was Conker’s first ever road race, obviously his fitness and determination to win from many years of competitive running have transferred extremely well to cycling.
Another great performance by Scott Gurnett. He wins the Primera Purbeck two day event held on the 28-29 Sept 2013.
