Double congratulations to Epic rider Alfie Peters who has been selected for the British Cycling Olympic Development Program for 2016. This will be Alfie’s second year on the program.

Alfie is in his third year of being coached by Epic. His selection is made all the more remarkable when you learn that he also has Type 1 Diabetes to deal with.

Alfie was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes during the 2014 season, the way he dealt with it was admirable. Watching Alfie from a coaching perspective , being diagnosed with the illness  seemed to only make him more determined to succeed on the bike!

Turning this would be negative into a positive,,Alfie went stateside this summer to trial for the Novo Nordsk Diabetes Junior Team. Despite being a year young he has now been offered a place on  Novo Nordsk’s team for 2017.

Well done Alf!
