Round 1 British National XC Series.

Last week-end saw club members at Pembrey Country Park for Round 1 of the British National XC Series.
Practice day on the Saturday was very wet which made the two technical big drop offs very formidable with many riders falling which led to minor modifications for Sundays races.
It was up early for our riders who all had a 9.00 am start time and the best of the weather.
In the Juvenile Boys race Tim had a tremendous start to lead the field into the woods on lap 1 continuing to ride strongly to secure an excellent 3rd place to a storming Freddy Birchill (Certini). After a strong start Luke fell back to finish in 15th in the large field of some 35 riders.
In the Youth Girls Katie moved up from the back of the start grid to finish in 9th place with only 2 minutes between her and 3rd place. The event was won by a flying Hattie Harndon.
Well Done Guys top class rides and the club is really proud of you all.

Pictures to follow.
