After months of preparation by the Dragon’s and Dyffryn Conwy at last it was the week-end for us to host Round 3 of the WMBS and the Welsh XC Championships at Coed y Brenin . The rain eased off during Saturday as the arena and course was set up but it was wet enough to ensure a super slippery race on Sunday.
Race day dawned dry and warm and we saw some exciting racing with the Dragons showing well in the Under 8 and youth classes. All the hard training paid off with Owen 5th in the Under 10 boys and Peter 7th in the Youth boys. The club had podium positions Hannah had 3rd place in the Under 8 girls, Tim was 2nd and Luke 3rd in the Juvenile boys and Katie was 2nd in the Youth girls class. In the afternoon race Mike was 2nd in the Super Vets.
Big thanks are due to all our sponsors, marshals, helpers, Strata Medical, Army Cadets, Welsh Cycling, NRW, the guys for the timing and the commentary and the trade stands and of course to all the riders, helpers and spectators we needed you all to make it the successful week-end that it was.
