Jamie Dick will be pursuing his professional golf playing career, representing CPM Sports, Gloucester Golf Centre and AT Golf Coaching, as well as beginning his PGA qualifications. Jamie will be coaching in the state of the art studios and working in the shop at AT Golf as well as playing a full season on the west region and PGA EuroPro Tour, for which he won qualifying school, an great achievement by itself. I work closely with all the playing and coaching pro's at AT Golf, and can't wait to see what Jamie can do in his first year on the European tour. Jamie is on the left, Alex Whittal is on the right (Mr A of AT Golf).
Oscar Powell is a mountain biker from Stroud with one goal, to have as much fun on a bike as possible.
Os has a background racing MTB 4X (four riders down the same track at the same time), and has been on the overall national podium 3 times, taking the series win in youth in 2016 . He recently raced MTB DH at the Fort William (Scotland) round of the UCI World Cup, getting a top ten result in Elite Men, a huge result for a teenager still in school! Os is racing a full national downhill calendar this year with hopefully a few European IXS races thrown in here and there, representing CPM Sports & 417 Bike Park. Let’s see how his first year of racing DH goes!
