What do you get when you combine one of Britain’s best downhill tracks and a Scotland on full chat weather wise ? One of the best weekends racing ever is what!

It’s true that an unfortunate clash with the BDS at Bala created a lower entry than usual, but 133 riders experienced the chance to get in as many runs as they wanted, a traffic free track and at the end of the day, when the gate drops, the bullshit stops!

We sent along Liam Moss to document all the action …..

Full results can be found at the bottom of the article.

* We apologise for having no images of the junior women in the report and big congrats go out to Freya Avis who took another big win.

Ben Cathro took first over this weekend with a flying time. The Sick Skill’s coach has been on fine form this season so far, and this marked another win for the Oban rider.

Arran Gannicott is slowly returning back to some speed. Yes, he was quite a way behind the two elite riders but with more race time we might see him back challenging for the FTDs on Roots and Rain.

Jack MCcallum took the win in Junior men. With the big guns down south, this was a great chance for some pinners with potential to show what they can do, and it’s amazing where confidence can take you.
