Twelve-year-old Chelsey Barnett, who is a member of Wrekin Riders, qualified for the competition by coming sixth in the BMX National Series last year.

To raise funds which will help her get there, the Telford Park School pupil is doing a sponsored bike ride and trek up The Wrekin with her father, Dave Barnett, and coach, Kieran Edwards, on February 10.

They will ride their bikes from Bridgnorth to the foot of The Wrekin, before trekking to the top and biking back down again.

Chelsey, of Doseley, Telford, is hoping to raise £2,000 to help pay for travel, accommodation and equipment costs.

Her mother Vicky Austin, who will be accompanying her daughter to the world championships, said: "She started all this when she was seven-and-a-half. It's a passion of hers.

"She's really excited about going to the world championships.
