Jolliffe Joins Team Terminator!

Promising Junior Alex Jolliffe made his debut for his new team at the recent Calshot track meeting. The 15 year old has left Poole Wheelers to join Team Terminator with the specific aim of being selected for the Olympic Development programme. Alex impressed at the Bournemouth track league last summer being one of only a couple of riders to progress from the "B" to the "A" league. National outfit Team Terminators ethos is to support youth and junior riders through sponsorship /coaching/mentoring and race support. Former national track coach and world masters’ champion, Dave Le Grys, based in the east of the country, is the team principle with Bournemouth Track league organiser Adam D’Arcy Wykes responsible for the southern region.
Wykes has been working closely with Jolliffe and is impressed by the youngster’s work ethic “I am really pleased to be working with Alex he has great promise and probably more importantly works hard at his training. We are working on improving his strength and tactical awareness both on the track and in the youth circuit race series along with fitting it in around a very important school year and exams. He's a pleasure to coach with a great attitude.” Commented Wykes.
Jolliffe attends the Wey Valley School in Weymouth where he is studying GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics, PE, Maths, English, Geography and Spanish. It promises to be a busy year as he tries to emulate fellow student Rebecca Raybould who has been selected for the British Cycling talent team.
“All my training is done through Adam and we are working together in preparation for the track nationals, national road series, ice breaker youth series and youth omniums and some of the Omega circuit races. But the main goal is the track nationals.” Says Alex
Team Terminator are sponsored by Inbuild, Dolan & Reflex Nutrition, Jolliffe also has backing from Dorchester bike shop, Mud,Sweat’n Gears who have supplied a bike and kit for the coming season.
