Blenheim cyclist Richard Anderson is heading to Switzerland on 1st of June in preparation for the World Champs in Canada in September.  He will be training and racing in the Swiss Cups, a couple of World Cup races and also some racing in Italy. 

Richard is coached by Tony Catterick and this is a partnership seems to be producing great results. Richards’s results of note in the last year;

1st overall – Sth Island Secondary School Champs

1st senior – National Secondary Schools MTB Champs

2nd under 19 – National MTB Championsships

14th under 19 – World MTB Championships

This year so far:

Richard has placed 1st and 2nd in all racing this season, finishing it with winning the under 19 X-Country MTB National title and the National MTB Championships held in March.. 

This automatically qualifies him to represent New Zealand at the Worlds in Canada later this year.

Clearly, Richard has an exciting future in the sport.
