Track Master Kevin Inspired By Break The Cycle

A track cyclist, who was inspired to take up the sport after a velodrome trip organised by Break The Cycle and Bristol Rugby Community Foundation, has finished ninth in world at the UCI World Masters Track Championships in Manchester. 
Kevin Dunn, 38, from Bristol fought off competition from across the globe to secure a top-ten finish and was also ranked third in Great Britain over 1km. 
Kevin said: “To find myself racing against to best in the world in my age category, which includes elite professionals and ex-professionals is a dream come true. 
“I may even find myself in the Team Sprint against Olympic Gold Medalist Jason Kenny at the Nationals in Manchester early next year.”
Kevin’s journey to the world stage started with a trip to Newport Velodrome on April 19th – and after an impressive display on the track, he was invited back for another session.

He was then signed by Olympic Athlete, Pete Mitchell at Black Line Racing team, before making his GB Masters debut last weekend – and Kevin says he is now taking his training very seriously.
“It means I am now following a strict programme in terms of training and nutrition, but I’m really enjoying it,” he said.
Kevin - who completed Break The Cycle 2016 in July – also took on a 670-mile charity ride from London to Geneva, via Paris for Action Medical Research.
