Perago Trust grant recipient Rueben Webster gives an update on his training and competition.
I wanted to thank you for your support in helping me achieve my goals during the track season at T-Town Pennsylvania.
I arrived in June following a touch of Covid-19 and was unsure how my break in training and health would affect my results. After a slow introduction back into racing, my goals started to be achieved.
During the UCI racing part of the season, where Elite, Olympians and Commonwealth Games Athletes enter, I was delighted to take a 4th in the Elite Keirin and followed this with a Bronze medal in the U23 Elite Keirin.
Later in the season I also participated in the Pro-Am section gaining many wins and trying out new race techniques.
The knowledge and experience I have gained during this trip is just huge and to be surrounded by athletes who have helped me along the way and given their time has been priceless.
I am looking forward to the rest of the year with new challenges and goals which will help me reach my full potential.
Thank you once again for your support, it really means a lot.
