Dust clouds were obligatory.

This weekend the British downhill series returned, this time settling at Rhyd-Y-Felin, Llangynog... far from the "Mini world cup" we saw in Fort Bill, but still equally as exciting.
Charlie Hatton continued turning heads as a first year elite and wrapped up his first ever BDS victory. In the women's race Tahnee Seagrave was simply a class above and put 29 seconds into the rest of the field.

Contrary to 'The Nogs' typical climate, the sun would continue to beat down throughout the weekend, as Nog experienced one of it's hottest, and possibly only heatwaves this year - the course would remain dusty and loose as ever...
Starting off the day, you would be wise to make the first uplift - getting in your runs before the heat rolled in.
