The DHL Sprint School has risen from its its successful inclusion in the Revolution series to form its very own event, with the first taking place at Newport velodrome recently.
And the success of the format has been proved with the recent news of Jamie Bremner, at the tender age of 15, being picked up by the Talent team and leading to him competing in the Elite men’s sprint event at the November round of the Revolution series.
Jamie’s been putting in a lot of hard work and getting good results, but more importantly he’s really enjoying it: ‘the highlight of my year would definitely be racing at Revolution’.
Surprisingly, Jamie only took up cycling just last year, and has made enormous progress since then. “Back in February I had no idea I’d get this far this quick as I only started cycling in April 2006.”
Following his DHL Sprint School coaching, Jamie’s approach to training has changed dramatically. “The training I was doing wasn’t making a difference but now it is and I’m happy, I enjoy it and even go out in the rain.”
After Christmas, Jamie will be working even harder to fulfill his ambitions of getting onto the ODP and winning medals in the 2008 British and Scottish Championships. With big aims for the coming years, Jamie’s already looking to the future, when he hopes to “possibly compete in the Commonwealth Games in 2010, definitely in my own country in 2014 and try for the 2012 Olympics too.”
