Round 1 of the Hafren CC Road Bike Series 20 April

The pre-season Road Bike only TT held on the Forden Circuit (shortened by roadworks) looked like it might have to be cancelled because of the extensive top dressing on the Forden/Caerhowel stretch started without notice on Tuesday. A juggle of the start and finish meant the course was not quite the full loop, but provided a good night’s racing. A good strong field of 26 riders and perfect weather conditions kicked this different series off top a great start.

Round 2 will be on the 20th July (Royal Welsh Show week when our other TT courses are not ridden) with an end of season close on 11th September.

Hafren’s Max Bufton’s 13:49 gave him a winning margin of 4 seconds over TrainSharp Development Team’ Sam Holwill (13:53) with Mid Shropshire Wheeler Mark White taking 3rd (15:05)

The Women’s race was also hard fought with Emma Serjeant (16:25) taking top spot from 2nd place Olivia Hughes (16:46) and Karen Proctor (18:14) in third
