Tokyo gold medallist will use Euros to learn on road to Paris 2024 – and hopes to inspire girls and young women too
Charlotte Worthington had promised to unveil something with “more of the wow factor” in her quest to add a European BMX title in Munich to the Olympic gold her skill and audacity secured in Tokyo last summer. It is all part of the Mancunian’s grand plan to twist and shout once again in the summer of 2024 in Paris.
There have been ebbs and flows already, including a ferocious crash earlier this year in Montpellier when even she attested to pushing too far. Into her bag of tricks here she dropped a 720-degree twist. However, its test ride crashed and burned with medals on the line in the Park final on Friday, the 26-year-old twice felled on the track and limping off eighth and last.
