ILFORD'S Joe Perrett will compete in the road race and time trial for Great Britain at the European Cycling Championships in early July.
Perrett is the current British Junior Circuit Time-Trial champion and has won the right to compete in the red, white and blue bands of a British champion.
In the past three weeks Perrett, who races for the Brentwood-based Glendene Cycling Club, has also added the National 10-mile and National 25-mile time trial titles.
This is a first for a junior cyclist to hold all three titles - not even previous winners, including Olympian Bradley Wiggins, have achieved that.

Apart from individual successes, Perrett, along with brothers Tom and Rob Yeatman, also became national 10-mile team champions.

A title that the Glendene club has held four times in the past five years.
However, they also took the Team 25- mile National title which has never been achieved before, as the club put itself emphatically on the map in the British Junior Road Cycling scene.
