Meanwhile the guys also took part in the BDS the previous week.  Here’s a round-up from Moycullen 

Round 1 of the Halo British Downhill Series started at Nant Gwrtheyrn on the 19th and 20th of March.  The weekend started with sunny weather on Saturday but the sky opened up for race day on Sunday and the track ended up wery muddy and slippy.

MBW Racing riders Luke Cornforth placed 2nd and Jacob Dickson place 4th in the U14s.

Cameron Cornforth, also riding for MBW Racing, finished 4th in the U16s even after catching his bike on a rock and having to finish the run with a broken derailuer stuck in high gear.

The weekend couldnt have been possible without the help from Luke and Cam’s father Anthony and Jackob’s father Mark Dickson for driving the team van from Ireland over to support the lads at the race and Damo for the camper.
