The Onchan youngster returned to cycling last year and since then has made great strides in the sport. Competing in her first year in the under 14 girls category, Amelia really came to the fore in the opening rounds of British Cycling’s prestigious youth series.

In the IOM Youth Tour she started the final stage in Ramsey well placed to fight for a top three finish overall. Unfortunately, she lost time in a crash, but recovered well to salvage a very good eighth on GC.

Three weeks later she produced one of the best Manx performances in the North West Youth Tour, scoring a brace of excellent fifth places on the final two stages for a fine seventh in the final overall standings. A brilliant performance considering that she was competing against the top category B girls in Britain, some of whom were two years older than her.

At home Amelia, who is still only 12, has already broken the magic 30 minute mark in the Conister Trust 10 league and is currently leading her class in the RL360 Tuesday night youth circuit race series. She has also qualified for the national final of the British GHS juvenile 10-mile time trial championship.

In recognition of her achievements Amelia receives a commemorative trophy and £50 in cash.
