Amelia Sharpe joins NXTG Racing from 2021Tweet Share on Facebook
Amelia Sharpe joins NXTG Racing from 2021 on a two-year contract. She is the third new signing for NXTG Racing after Mylène de Zoete and Maud Rijnbeek. The 19-year old rider from the Isle of Man is looking forward to her step towards the UCI level.
I’m really excited to join NXTG. My goals for the next year are to develop as a rider and become more knowledgeable on racing tactics. With the experienced riders and staff NXTG has, it's the perfect place for me. I’m also looking forward to meeting all the girls on the team and living out in the Watersley sports and talent park.
Amelia grew up on the Isle of Man but currently lives in Manchester.. She started riding when she was 5 and started racing when she was 12. She raced a lot in the Netherlands and Belgium as junior in the Nations Cup races. With a 5th place in the overall of the EPZ Omloop van Borsele she showed she knows how to race in the windy and fast races in the low countries.
As a rider I would say I am an all-rounder. I love the hills but also love the windy flat races in Holland where the racing is so hard it just splits the field. I enjoy racing on the track too especially during the winter to avoid the British weather! Whatever the race I will always give 100%.
