QEH student Joe Wallbridge is gearing up for the BMX World Championships this month.

The Year 12 pupil will be competing at the prestigious event, held in Zolder, Belgium from July 20 to 25.

He will be 17 at the time – one of the youngest in his age category.

Joe is currently leading in the national junior Four Cross Series and has also won a South West regional competition in the 15 years and above Cruiser category.

Joe, who has just been appointed a vice-captain of school at QEH, said: “I feel extremely excited to have reached this advanced stage of the competition in a sport which continues to receive such worldwide attention, especially since it became a recognised medal sport in the 2008 Olympics.

“I want to thank my sponsors: Curtis Bikes, Kore USA, Bluegrass Eagle, Duck Smart, Decade Europe, 100%, Gamut USA and Royal Racing for supporting me this year.”
