Benjamin Wadey - Cycling
Course: BSc (Hons) Earth Sciences with Foundation YearComing from a family of sport enthusiasts, Benjamin got his love of cycling from his father but found his passion for the sport through his brother, as both enjoyed BMXing. He built up his skills and strength and the competitive side quickly followed. After his first race (a Midlands Round at East Ridge) Benjamin realised he really wanted to pursue his love for the sport and reach the highest level possible.
Benjamin chose Plymouth University for its Geology course as well as the fantastic local trails right on the doorstep, including the national course at Newnham Park. Ben's hard work and dedication has been rewarded in 2016 with a
first place national ranking (expert category). He also took second place in the Under 23 CycloCross National Championships.
