More Pictures below 17 juniors and 10 adults pulled on their Hafren shirts to brave the mud last Sunday for Round 6 of the Welsh Cyclocross league in Aberystwyth.    The going was soft to say the least and all the riders acquitted themselves well on a technically demanding course.  Kat Holwill was the highest placed Hafren rider finishing 2nd in the Novice Women Category.

Round 2 Hafren CX Series – Foxley Cyclocross – 24th September

Sunday 24th was the 3rd round of the Welsh Cyclocross League on the Foxley Estate near Hereford. 21 Hafren riders took to the start line. The course was very different to the technical challenge at Builth a fortnight ago. It was dry and fast suiting more the powerful riders. There were some great performances from the young Hafren riders and it is really encouraging to see so many turning up to race. Max Bufton narrowly missed out on a podium in the U1...

Club TT Series Round 15 – 30 August 2017

The last time trial of the season took place tonight on the 12.8 mile Newtown course.  With everything to play for the whole season came down to this race for the top two riders, Peter Thomas and Ashley Banks.  Ashley had to beat Peter and come first on the night in order to tie the whole series.  Unfortunately for Ashley there was the little matter of Bryn Davies to contend with.  Bryn has been winning virtually everything he has entered this season but h...

Club TT Series Round 14 – 23 Aug 2017

This is the time of year when the farmers are collecting their crops and making hay while the sun shines.  This means that occasionally we see large farm machinery travelling up and down the roads and causing delays for other road users.  Unfortunately this happened tonight with a combine harvester just as our time trial was on going and affected a few of the competitors causing them to slow slightly and lose time (I was quite pleased because it gave me a ...
