We were so pleased to hear about the fantastic efforts of a former Rosendale pupil, Fred Wright, who left in 2010. He has been selected as a member of the professional road cycle racing team Bahrain Merida for 2020. The team is one of the leading Pro cycling teams in the world and as well as becoming a team mate of Vicenzo Nibali (former Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana winner) he will also join the UK’s most successful professional racer Mark Cavendish (World Champion 2011, winner of 30 Tour de France stages). What better place for Fred to start his professional career and all this from very humble beginnings at Herne Hill Velodrome. Good luck for the next season Fred.
