Hi, my name is Alex and I'm a racing cyclist from West Lothian in Scotland. This summer I was fortunate to be offered a place on Zappi Racing Team, a British cycling squad based in Italy, which means that I will be moving out there to race and train at the start of next year. I am so excited to have this opportunity after years of hard work, starting out at my local club, West Lothian Clarion.
However, I now have the task of covering the costs of being a competitive cyclist in Europe. I've made a number of sacrifices this year in order to contribute towards funding my career, such as taking time out of university to get a job, but your help would be hugely appreciated.
Half of the money raised will be donated to Project Go, a charity which is associated with my current team Vanelli-Project Go. Project Go was set up by Nick and Kirsty Ohly, and aims to raise awareness and funds towards finding a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy after both their children were diagnosed with the disease. I'd love to help such an important cause, while also showing my gratitude for the support my team has provided this year.
It would be absolutely amazing if you were able to share this page or donate any money. And thank you!!!!
