Joe Holt - Cycling Success

Joe Holt Takes Title at Olympic Velodrome!

Congratulations to Joe Holt who has just won the overall 'Hoy Future Stars' title which is part of the Revolution Series track cycling championships held over five rounds at London, Manchester and Glasgow. 

The Hoy Future Stars title is becoming more and more prestigious every year and past winners have gone on to become World and Olympic Champions.  The Revolution Series began in 2003, when Sir Dave Brailsford realised the importance of introducing young riders to a big crowd and competitive environment. 

Joe's team-mate Brett Nethell, also a pupil in Year 11 at Bryngwyn, was a member of the successful Team USN who won the overall team prize.  This is a fantastic achievement for the boys and all the staff and pupils at Bryngwyn are very proud of them both.

Joe Holt Wins Carmarthenshire Young Sportsman of the Year Award!

Bryngwyn's star cyclist, Joe Holt, has been awarded the prestigious title of Carmarthenshire Young Sportsman of the Year 2013 at a ceremony held at the Stradey Park Hotel on 29th January.

The Award was presented for Joe's dominant performances on both the National and International road and track cycling scene and the achievement has crowned off an impressive year for Joe, where he has progressed through the ranks of British Cycling's Olympic Talent Team and on to the organisation's Olympic Development Programme for 2014.

The Award Ceremony was organised by Active Carmarthenshire and Carmarthenshire Local Sports Council and was a showcase for the overall sporting talent within the county.  The main award of the night, the Sports Personality of the Year, was awarded to the Scarlets and British Lions centre, Jonathan Davies and in his summing up, Ian Howell, Chairman of the Carmarthenshire Local Sports Council, praised the standard of all those nominated for the night's awards.  He added that the standard of nominees is increasing and that their achievements are being recognised not only locally but nationally and internationally, a fact that is making it much harder to even short-list the candidates.  Our warmest congratulations go to Joe - a fantastic achievement!

First Wins of 2014 Season for Joe Holt

In his first full outing for British Cycling’s Olympic Development Programme (ODP), Year 11 pupil Joe Holt has shown selectors that his inclusion within the team has been more than justified.

Following on from an impressive season last year for the Olympic Talent Team Team and Wales, Joe has begun to showcase his ability on the next rung of the Olympic ladder, in what is his first full season as a Junior.

Forming part of a 4 man endurance team track squad, representing Great Britain at the International Junior Track Meeting in Apeldoorn, Holland last week, Joe returned with two gold medals and impressive placings in the other races entered.

As part of the four man team pursuit they registered a time of 4mins 17secs to take first place - a massive eight seconds ahead of the second placed team. Their time was three seconds ahead of their target and five ahead of last year’s British Cycling ODP.

In what was an action packed weekend of racing for Joe and the team, he also won the points race and finished second overall in the Derny Race, fifth overall in the Madison and fifth overall in the Elimination Race.

This will be Joe’s first year in the Junior ranks and with this display in his first races at that level, against some of the best riders in the world, some of whom are nearly two years older, it’s been an excellent start!
