Youth Talent Georgia Lancaster of Sleaford WheelersWednesday, 9th June 2021
Georgia Lancaster is an emerging talent at local club, Sleaford Wheelers. We recently fitted her with one of our new T3 suits (epically fast, especially when custom fitted to the rider) and she sent us this wonderful piece and photos. Thanks Georgia, it was great to meet you and fit you with the suit! From all at Impsport HQ we wish you the best of luck for your Further, Smarter, Faster cycling career to come.
“My name is Georgia Lancaster. I'm 16 years old and I am a rider for Sleaford Wheelers. I've always loved to ride my bike no matter what discipline, from cyclocross to circuit racing. Last September I got the chance to go and ride the Cycling Time Trials (CTT) national youth time trial in Portsmouth. As it was only my first time trial season and I did not have time trial specific kit, I wasn't exactly sure what I was getting myself into. However, I jumped at the chance to experience a bigger race, and came 11th! Thanks to my perseverance and performance, following the race, Impsport offered to sponsor me a fitted T3 Race Suit. This was a wonderful surprise, and demonstrates that you don’t have to be at the top of the field and or experienced in TTs to be recognised and supported.
Not only has the new suit helped me make massive progress in time trials, the fact that a company like Impsport had gone out of their way to help me has increased my confidence and drives me forward. Since receiving my new suit I have made a big leap in progress and I am proud to say I’m the current junior course record holder for the Lincoln TT course. I am not at the top of the field but I am willing to put in all the effort I need to, to get there. It isn’t always easy being a cyclist as a teenage girl, and with the silly tan lines and helmet hair it definitely isn’t a pretty sport. However, the community around cycling and the rewards you get from it makes it an amazing sport to take part in. I can’t thank Impsport enough for the support and generosity and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
