Welsh Mountain Bike Series -Llandegla – Sunday 19th May – Huw Buck-Jones – 1st place Under 16

The course was hard with a very steep climb right after the first ‘A’ line which then gradually got flatter towards the top near the reservoir. It had a variety of different surfaces to race on which was very interesting because one minute you were going across hard packed mud which was fast then crossing a river to riding through the forest.

The race its self was very challenging because you had to pace yourself due to the climb before the fast flatter bits.  After the first lap of four I was leading which I hadn’t expected, during the race I felt strong and was feeling good and as the race progressed I was still in 1st position.

In the end I managed to extend my lead and win the race and as a 1st year U16 was really chuffed, hopefully I can maintain this for the rest of the season.
