Welsh National Mountain Bike Series Rnd 1

I made the trip over the bridge for the first round of the Welsh National Mountain Bike Series at Margam Park to test the legs for the first time on the MTB in 2013.  In the combined Masters and Expert race I managed a 7th place finish in some apocalyptic weather which reminded me why Mountain Biking is a summer sport!

Thanks to WMB series for putting on the event in extreme weather, it was a good work out in the gloopy mud.  It was also good to see some of the trails that may be used in the National Points Series race later in the year.

I just hope that the sun will be out in Wales next time!

  1. I went with http://www.mbswindon.co.uk to Cwmcarn today. It was wet but mountain biking is not a summer sport – its for all seasons. The rain and mud can make it a tad cold and hard going but th every fact that you can adapt your bike and gear to the weather/conditions means it certainly shouldnt be restricted to the summer months.
