Towy Riders - Welsh Circuit Race Championships 2014 - Rhyl

The final major event of the cycling youth road calendar took place last weekend at the Marsh Tracks cycling circuit in Rhyl. A number of the Towy Riders team made the journey north to compete for the national titles.

On a windy, but thankfully sunny circuit the racing was fast and tactical with many of the races splitting into groups in order to rake shelter from the Irish Sea wind. A fantastic performance from five year old Ilan Dafydd saw him take the bronze medal in the under 8 boys. In the under 10 boys Iolo Dafydd fought hard in the wind, riding solo to try and catch two strong leaders, but came away with a great 3rd place and a bronze medal.

Ella Barnwell proved once again that she has a fast finish, coming away with the silver medal in the under 14 girls. The third of the Dafydd brothers, Guto, proved too strong for the rest of the field in the under 12 boys and rode away on the final lap to take the gold medal and the Welsh jersey as national champion.

A successful day from the Dafydd brothers (Iolo, Guto & Ilan)...
