Pure Bicycles Paddy Sharrock is probably one of most peoples favourite riders to watch on the UK race scene. For sure he’s one of mine.. Sometimes I think we forget how young he actually really is as he’s been known for his smooth “trail” style for some years already despite still only being 13!
He mixes up his riding and can be found at Rampworx Skatepark on a winter evening or down the woods hitting the trails on a summers day, in between ripping it up at any track and dominating races across the country. He finished second at the European Championships in France 2010 and since then has really been noticed as one of the next wave of guys that with the right guidance has the talent and potential to go all the way. Already having gained key experience of European and World finals at a young age and possesing bike skills that remind us of a young Brian Foster; Paddy in my opinion should definately be looking to put himself on the top step of that World podium in front of a home crowd in May.
