JUNIOR Isle of Wight cycling talent Harrison Hendy looks to have got the balance right between his need to study and generating some pedal power during his enforced stay at home from school.

Ten year old Harrison — the winner of multiple titles last year — has had his training regime put completely out of kilter since the coronavirus lockdown was put in place.

However, the youngster has been making the most of his time at home by combining his school work with roller training in the saddle.

Harrison, who last year won the BSCA National Hill Climb Championship in his age group, as well as the Winchester, Guildford and Farnham Criteriums and the South Regional Cyclocross U12 event, also came a superb second in the U10 Mini Paris-Roubaix race and third in the U11 European Youth Tour in Holland.

As a result, Harrison is a nominee for the 2019 Isle of Wight Sports Achievement Awards, which has been postponed until September because of coronavirus.

Supported by Wightlink under the Isle of Wight Council’s talented athlete scheme, Harrison hopes it won’t be long before he is back in competitive action and amassing more silverware.
