Annie races ahead with support from Transmec
A rising UK cycling star being sponsored by Transmec already has her sights set on Olympic glory – at the age of ten.
Circuit racer Annie Fearne hopes to emulate her idols, gold medallists Laura Kenny and Katie Archibald, and she’s even planned where to put her Olympic rings tattoo.
“Annie has progressed incredibly quickly for her age. She has won all major events and in the recent Dolan Series she won all six races and even lapped the field of girls,” explained her mum, Sarah.
“Plans for 2022 include a youth tour event in Holland, and regional events run by British Cycling. She will be competing as an under 12, so racing others older than herself, but she’s ready for this next chapter.
“We’re incredibly grateful for Transmec’s sponsorship – it helps to buy the kit and equipment that Annie needs and it also gives her a sense of pride, knowing that she has so much support.”
Transmec became aware of Annie’s talent through Bradford depot manager, Paul Priestley, whose son William, like Annie, is a member of Kirklees Cycling Academy.
“Annie has enormous potential and we’re very proud to be supporting her. She lives just five minutes away from the Bradford depot, so it’s great to have that local link,” said Paul.
“We look forward to following her in the years to come and hope we’ll eventually see her on an Olympic track.”
