Two New Welsh Champions For The Club

tim and katieCommanding rides gave two of the Dragons Welsh Championship Jerseys at Fforest Fields on Sunday 8th May.2016.

The very demanding course at Fforest Fields became really greasy after very heavy overnight rain. Leading to cuts in the number of laps to be raced for all except the Juvenile and Youth riders who had to ride the full amount and it saw a number of fancied riders deciding not to compete in the older age groups.

Tim has his usual fast start leading from the first corner to extend his lead on each lap to take his second Welsh Championship Jersey. Katie starting from the back of the ladies grid moved through the field to a commanding lead and taking her first Championship Jersey in the Youth Girls.

Lowrie continued to shine with a second in the U8 girls.
Our second claim members also had success with Griff 1st in U12 boys, Lois 2nd U10 girls, Tomos 3rd U8 boys and Megan 4th U12 girls.
