Charlotte Worthington Meet and Greet – 24.08.2021

We Were Rad had an incredible time meeting Olympic Freestyle Gold Medal Hero Charlotte Worthington.
We were absolutely stoked to share a stage with a BMX Legend. We cannot thank our good friend Alan Woods enough for the great honour and privilege of being the official guests at this very special event. We once again got to show our presentation to all those who attended and did a brief Q and A with the audience. Alans BMX holds a very special place in our hearts and features heavily in the book. In many ways truly a spiritual home of BMX in the U.K.
It was truly amazing to meet Charlotte and to get to sit on the actual bike she rode in the Olympic Games Freestyle Final.
