Weekend Round Up - BDS Round 1

What a weekend!

Massive congratulations must go to the Welsh Gravity Enduro team for hosting the first round of the new National Downhill Series.
We were down at Cwmcarn with ten of our own Landrovers and trailers providing the uplift for all the riders. All our drivers and vehicles survived the weekend but the clear up after a wet weekend in South Wales is never fun.

The big news of the weekend has to be the riders who have just moved up to Elite, riding their first National race in the top category. Matt Walker, a long time favourite at our own race series stepped up to the Elite category this year and beat the world’s best and previous world champions Danny Hart and Gee Atherton to take his first Elite national win at his first attempt.
Even bigger news on our behalf was Pearce Cycles team rider Abbie Sloan, also having just moved up to the Elite category, taking fifth place and getting to stand on the podium alongside some of the fastest female riders in the world.
Abbie, after having struggled with the jumps at the bottom of the course in the wet practice conditions, lost time on her preferred upper part of the course in her race run but managed to put in a good second half of the course to finish less than half a second behind the fourth placed rider.
Well done Abbie! Great to have you on the team.

Locally, the riding conditions were fantastic and it seems like all the locals were out making the most of it.

On the road bikes Specialized had a massive win in the Paris-Roubaix with Peter Sagan taking a popular win aboard his Specialized Roubaix. To test ride a Roubaix, have a look here: http://www.pearcecycles.co.uk/product_list/253

We have our next uplifts at Hopton coming up on the 22nd and 29th of April. Click here: https://www.pearceevents.co.uk/
