YOUNGSTERS from across the borough competed for the prestigious title of Cyclist of the Year 2009.

The 44 competitors represented the cream of the 1,500 young people trained this year to national standards level 2, the traditional cycling proficiency scheme.

The event was held at Norman Park in Bromley on July 11 and Elliot Wedge, 11, from Bromley was crowned the winner, scoring 194 points out of a possible 200.

His prizes including a new bike, a trophy and a cycling goodie bag were presented by Graham Cole who played PC Tony Stamp in ITV's The Bill.

One of the judges, cycle training officer Georgina Cooper said: "This year's competition was incredibly hard to judge because the standard was so high. The title was won by three points with very few points between the top ten finalists."

During the event the cyclists were tested on different skills exercises, including turning left, turning right, cycle maintenance, cycle control and the Highway Code.
