Round 1 of the BDS and the first appearance of Propain Dirt Zelvy’s newest riders.
By Liam Joyce
Brothers George and Henry Kerr made the 12 hour journey down from their home in Inverness, Scotland to Nant Gwrtheyrn in Wales to battle it out in the Junior category at the first BDS.
It was also the first time the boys got to take their new Propain Rage Carbon bikes out for a spin and practice on Saturday was spent adjusting suspension set ups and getting the bikes dialled in for race day.
Come Sunday the weather had changed and the sun was out. The lads were looking quick in qualifying, with Henry qualifying 8th.
Unfortunately luck was not with the wee Scotsmen come Race runs, with a snapped chain out the gate for Henry and a crash for George, the results didn’t come in. Despite this the fellas were stoked on their new bikes and say ” The weekend was wicked, great to meet the team and we used this opportunity to get used to our new bikes, bring on the first World Cup in Lourdes”.
