Year 7 Freddie is currently taking the BMX biking world by storm as National and British champion. 

Freddie is a member of Preston Pirates BMX Club and said: “I got into it when I was riding around the Guild Wheel, aged around six or seven, and I saw some riders on a track. I stopped and watched and they invited me down and I have taken it from there.” 

Freddie has competed all over Europe, including France and Belgium, taking part in European and World BMX competitions. 

“I am a bit of a risk taker so I enjoy the challenges of BMX riding,” said Freddie. 

“I also enjoy coaching and I coach some of the younger age groups at Preston Pirates.” 

Freddie was National and British champion for nine-year-olds, he was double champion aged 10 and has just won the 11-year-old National and British titles. 

“The National title is won over a series of eight races in the UK and you pick up points over the series. 

“The British title is a one-off day, it was in Derby, and you have to go through the rounds with eight competing in the final and I won. 

“My dream is to compete in the Olympics.”
