A BMX-biker from Abbots Langley has been nominated for a national skills award that will be presented by Olympian, Tom Daley.
Mark Taylor, of High Acres, has only been riding for two years but has already been nominated for the Fruit Shoot skills award in the best biker category.
The 15-year-old said: "I was really happy when I heard that I had been nominated for this award, I love riding and ride almost every day. I hope one day to become a professional rider and would like to enter competitions. I am really hoping to win this award and hopefully it can help bring me some serious sponsors to help me achieve my goal."
The award ceremony will be hosted by Olympic diver, Tom Daley, on Saturday, September 7. He will be joined on stage by X Factor’s Union J and Britain’s Got Talent’s The Luminites.
Carmen Gonzalez, Mark’s mother, said: "I know I am biased, but Mark is very talented."
