Llandegla Sat 21 Jan

Despite the gale we had a brilliant ride round the red and black trails, including the new bits of singletrack heading back all the way to the trail centre. Luckily we set off just before the trails were closed due to the high winds and found it almost unridable on the exposed sections. However, back in the forest it was very sheltered and we even had a bit of sunshine.

Giles led us on the ups and tussled with Matthew for the lead on the descents. Richard C was going well and Kev U, on a roll fresh from his NW CycloCross Association league category win, battered it up all the climbs. Kev C was going well and getting much quicker on the descents with Eleanor and Geoff from the Birkenhead North End enjoying it too. Steve A ventured up here for the first time and loved it, applying his BMX skills to the jumps and berms. Lionel took his youngster round the blue trail which was pretty tough on such a windy morning.

The new sections were excellent with some flowing jumps and berms and a few surprises to keep us on our toes. Quite a few tough climbs too for extra interval training. Don’t forget to get your entries in for Hit the North on 4 Feb.

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
