Georg has ridden a bike ever since he can remember. “I started road racing when I was 9 and went on to compete in Cyclocross, Mountain biking and Track events at the Velodrome.” His first club was LVYCC where he developed as an athlete and was selected as a Great Britain Olympic Development Apprentice. As a first year junior he raced for VCL on a team with Ethan Hayter (now World and European Champion); Fred Wright (European Champion) and Jacob Vaughan (previous National Champion). 

In 2017 he was selected to join HMT with JLT Condor development team. “After the best winter I’ve ever had I was the strongest I could’ve been. Unfortunately I suffered a major crash in my first race of the year- Kuurne- Brussels- Kuurne, which cost me a great amount of the season and lost me confidence riding in bunch situations.” Whilst trying to concentrate on his A-Level exams and over training he hit a rough patch. “I didn’t want to cycle at all. There was no fun in it for me at that time. I was being told to train and ended up digging myself into a hole that was tricky to escape”. At the end of 2017 he was going to quit cycling but after speaking with James who he had ridden with throughout his whole career he agreed to speak with Mat who persuaded him to give Fixed gear racing a go. 

“It has been a slow journey re-gaining my confidence after the pressure of performing. My determination had me racing at the Junior Tour of Flanders; against 150+ riders only 1 month after my crash. I managed to keep my head on whilst racing in Poland in a hectic UCI stage race- and finished 9th. I also rode the U23 Cup at the London 6 Day Madison where I finished in top 5 position with my teammate from Denmark.”
