North Devon Gazette

Megan Dickerson from Fremington has graduated from the prestigious Å KODA DSI Cycling Academy and will ride for Fulfil the Potential Racing in 2022. Â

Under Dame Sarah Storey, Academy Principal and Great Britain’s most successful Paralympian, Megan experienced the life of a professional rider that included ride experience at the Women’s Tour, Tour of Britain, and Tour Series. Megan was also educated in the performance, nutrition and media profiles required to be a modern-day pro-cyclist. Â

Dame Sarah Storey commented on Megan’s success: “I’m proud to see how Megan has developed during her time with the ŠKODA Cycling Academy and has been able to find a full focus for her time trial specialty which is very good to see. I wish her all the very best of luck for the future and will be monitoring her progress with great interest.”Â

“My advice to Megan has remained consistent throughout the time I have worked with her. Focus on a process driven approach and the things that are within your control. Logical decision making is key and maximising new opportunities will always be important.”Â

Dickerson, who is combining her cycling ambitions with full-time work at a Bristol digital social media agency, said: “I’ve been on a three-year journey with the Academy, thanks to Dame Sarah and ŠKODA, I’ve learnt and experienced so much. All of the Academy riders are now close friends and I’m excited to competing against them in the very near future.Â

“I will be targeting national level time trial and road races in the new 2022 season and I’m thrilled to be joining Fulfil the Potential Racing, where we'll be looking to build a strong women's team to challenge the competition.”Â

Rob, Megan’s partner, commented: “I’m so proud of what Megan has achieved during her three years with the Å KODA Cycling Academy. I’m extremely excited to follow her next steps with Fulfil the Potential Racing. Ultimately her success is testimony to her hard work and dedication to the sport that she loves. I wish her all the very best of luck and will be supporting her all the way.”Â
