A promising young cyclist has been given a boost with sponsorship from a local bike shop.

Matty Cole, 12, a member of Richmond Triathlon Club, is being sponsored by Arthur Caygills of Richmond.

Scott Caygill said: “Here at Caygill cycles we have carried out numerous bike fits for all kinds of disciplines, the latest being a junior member of the cycling fraternity, Matty Cole.

This story continues after the adverts:

“Matty is a keen racing cyclist who we are sponsoring for 2017.

“We wish him well in this years events on his Caygill time trial bike – look out for him around Richmondshire and beyond.”

Matty is a member of the club’s progression group.

He regularly rides out with dad Chris around the local countryside, with the Buttertubs being an exhilarating favourite.

He also takes part in the summer Richmond to Reeth time trials organised by Richmond Cycling Club and races at TLI at Croft Circuit.
