Fantastic weather at Caersws DH Bike Park up lift, weather was sunny and warm but in places the tracks were a little muddy, Glyn, Richard, Thomas and Rhys had also signed on so it should be a fun day, to start off with I felt a little sketchy but I think it was just the hard dried mud on top of the track, as the day went on things got better and better.

Well it got better for most of us but no so for Glyn as it all went wrong on the last jump into the quarry, to be fair it was quite a nasty crash and Glyn didn’t seem to know where he was, so Mark the first aider decided to call an ambulance as it looked like Glyn’s collar bone had gone and he also didn’t really know what was going on.

So it was off for a ride in the ambulance for Glyn to Aberystwyth A&E ( Get back on it soon buddy) the rest of the day went without any problems think I did around 12-14 runs with some quite fast ones which is all good practise for the up and coming races.

Pre race practise at Moelfre up lift weather was a lot better than forecast so the track was dry and fast, I had around 10 runs practising/looking at lines and getting some good speed, hopefully it will all go to plan next weekend.

Day at Caersws DH Park for the first uplift of the year, nice to get the beast rolling again and get some practise in for this years race season, bike performed well, new Conti Der Kaiser on the front.

The going was good the track was quite dry but the wind was absolutely freezing, I think I did around 10-12 runs and got some good practise in, I was riding mainly with Glyn and he showed me some good lines down the big drop in the root section which I felt a lot more confident about by the finish.

Big thank you to Lucie Burn Photography for the above photos.

Day at Revs with the Caersws DH Team on Friday, James, Malc, Ryan and Dean, weather was good tracks a little tacky/slick after over night rain, it was a bit of a chilled start with lots of talking in the car park I was kitted up and ready to go and we all finally got on the up lift for some fun.

Only me and James did the bottom jumps as the others didn’t want to push up the little hill, we did a few different tracks trying different lines and joining different tracks up to make it all a little new, by now James and dad were working on his suspension settings to try to improve the feel of the “Beast”

So the rest of us rode together, Dean and Ryan had an off so me and Malc did a few run together, after a run we were chatting by the cars I noticed Thanee Seagrave and Kaos down below us and also Adam Brayton going to see good ridding from this three.

We had a cracking day and will be back in two weeks for my birthday bash, can’t wait, mind I’ve got Henblas up lift in between so a couple of weeks good ridding.
