Charlie is from Oxford and was previously with Zappi Junior Racing Team. He has been nurtured by Flavio Zappi from the age of 15 and is one of those riders that has stayed focused on road and never done much track or cross – other than for a bit of varied winter training.

In 2016, he focused on trying to make an impact in Europe by riding in Belgium with John Barclay’s South East region team as well as racing in Spain, Belgium and Italy with Zappi Juniors. He got good development through the year, and achieved consistently good results in National and UCI races. ... continued after advert

Leopard have a broad view and saw the potential. They have a great calendar, management set-up and have a strong approach to rider development – which is just what he needs as he enter the U23 ranks.

Inspired by the road race of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Charlie only started cycling only four years ago and has had some promising results such as a third place in the Giro di Basilicata (2.1) and strong performances at the Omloop der Vlaamse Gewesten (1.1) and the GP Bati-Metallo (both 1.1).

The 18-year old is yet to find his speciality. Charlie Quarterman said of the opportunity “I am very excited about joining Leopard Pro Cycling. It’s a well-known team with a diverse calendar in which I can find out which races suit me best. There is a very good support team and a good atmosphere with the mix of older and younger riders. I’m just looking forward to being in a solid team. In 2017 I want to learn how to race in the U23 races, but I also will try to finish on a podium place.

September 2016 Giro di Basilicata, Italy (UCI 2.1) 3rd in GC
