Stoke Potters rider Joe Alcock says he is delighted with his call-up to the Team GB under 21 squad.
The youngster is out at a training camp in Germany.
He is being put through his paces, learning about nutrition and how to deal with other issues at international level.
Alcock is aiming to get some laps in ahead of the new season which starts next month.
He will also travel to the Isle of Wight in the British under 21 semi-final which will take place at the Smallbrook Stadium on April 16th.
The Potters youngster will be looking to qualify for the final at Berwick where the top three riders from the two semi-finals will travel to the border track where they will join ten seeded riders.
