'There are no words for it'

Well, actually there are......

Yesterday it was confirmed that Charlie Paige, of Clitheroe in Lancashire and a #RaynerFoundation supported rider had signed his first professional contract.

The announcement was made on GCN, by George Poole.

Charlie has been supported by the Rayner Foundation for all his U23 years, all of them spent in France. He had this to say

"I remember attending their Foundation Dinner as a junior and being very inspired. There are plenty of others who have come through now like Adam Yates [UAE Team Emirates], Sam Watson [Groupama-FDJ], Owain Doull, James Shaw [both EF Education-EasyPost] et cetera, so to add my name to the list of professionals who have come through the Rayner Foundation is a real honour."

Quand le rêve devient réalité // When the dream becomes a reality

From 2024 Charlie will be wearing the colourful outfits of Tour de Tietema ..

He had this to say "It’s an honour to sign with TDT-Unibet for 2024 + 2025! I can’t thank them enough. They have a vision just as I did at the start of my journey, but now it’s time to level up"
