An opportunity can change a life. An opportunity can be life changing. And we’re big believers in the opportunities that bikes and cycling can provide young people.
That’s why we created the Velo Ronny’s Junior Academy.
Jarred Treymane – 18 – Cambridge
We asked our Junior Academy Riders about their cycling Goals.
Jarred work ethic and attitude will no doubt help him “to perform at the very top of cycling and get a medal at the Olympics games”. He could also be the next Graham Watson with his bike photography skills!
Adam Francis – 15 – Palmerston North
We asked our Junior Academy Riders if they could come back as bike what would they be?
No surprises from Adam Francis, in fact, we think it’s Adams middle name…Trek Bicycle Procaliber 9.9.
Emily Shearman – 19 – Palmerston North
We asked our Junior Academy Riders how they got in cycling. Emily Shearman was into triathlon and running and then saw the light…aka…knee problems! “I decided to continue with the cycling as it was less impact on my knee and have never looked back.
Kyle Hoskin- 16 – Wanganui
We asked our Junior Academy Riders about their life goals:
Apart from working at Velo Ronny’s (ok, I added that) Kyle Hoskin aspires…”to become a professional athlete, complete my apprenticeship, own my own business and to be able to do the activities I enjoy doing.”
Jack Carswell – 16 – Cambridge
We asked our Junior Academy Riders to describe their riding style as a breed of dog (ssshh…we love dogs more than bikes).
Jack compares himself to an Alsatian or German Shepherd, not for their sand digging skills, but “they are hard working and loyal dogs. When I am racing and training I like to go out there and get the job done!
Nicole Murray- 23 – Otorohonga
We asked our Junior Academy Riders to describe their favorite post ride snack (ride hard, eat hard, right?).
It was a hard choice for Nikki Murray…..we thought the whole capsicum but it’s the seaweed bites that take the cake. Hmm cake.
