CHARLIE Tanfield is on 'another level', according to one of his team-mates.

Tanfield joined Ed Clancy, sprinter Kian Emadi, 25 and 19-year-old Ethan Hayter to claim rainbow jerseys for Great Britain in the men's team pursuit at the 2018 UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Holland.

Great Ayton rider Tanfield, 21, was one of two amateurs in the British squad.

He also managed a fourth-placed finish in the individual pursuit, must wait to see if he can get on to the elite programme in the coming months, which would be a remarkable achievement for a young man who has been combining training with his university studies.

"He's worked flipping hard," said his fellow amateur and KGF team-mate Dan Bigham. "Some of the stuff he does is on another level. He does a whole day of university, 9am til 6pm, then he puts his lights on and does a five-hour ride because he's got to do it. Fair play to him."
