Hayes teenager Jason Daley has set his sights on conquering the BMX World Championships after his success at Prudential RideLondon on Friday.

The Hayes Hawks BMX Club member won the 15-16 boys class at the Grand Prix on day one of the three-day event in the capital, with the BMX events taking place on the track made famous by the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Daley just missed out on qualification to this year’s World Championships, but believes next year will see a more positive outcome after his performance at the world’s greatest festival of cycling.

“If I do well in the nationals, I’d love it because I’d be able to go to the World Championships,” he said.

“This is my first time racing at Prudential RideLondon and it was amazing, I would love to do it again next year.

“The atmosphere was surreal and overall it was a very eventful day, this track’s really prestigious and it’s a difficult one, but I managed to master it today.”

Daley hopes to go to East Berkshire College to study a BTEC in sport, but first he will compete in the BMX National Series Cyclopark and the British Championships against the best riders in the UK.

For now, the 16-year-old is satisfied with his Prudential RideLondon prize money, with up to £500 on offer for the winners of each category at the event.

“My Dad is proud that I’m doing so well, but also upset because I cost a lot of money as I break something on my bike every race, like today I snapped a spoke,” he said.

“So I’ll use the prize money from today for more parts for my bike, because everything could be upgraded.

“People around my area don’t do BMX, they know a bit about me doing it from social media but I’m not sure they know quite how well I’m doing - if they saw, I think they’d be really pleased and proud too.”
