News coming in on the Twitter that Marc Beaumont has won the opening Halo BDS race at Nant Gwrtheyrn.
Cracking run for Al Bond in second and Peaty in third.
We’ll updated you with the full results when we get them.
Dirt Norco rider Dan Stanbridge has just phoned in with the top 5:
1. Marc Beaumont 2:16.698
2. Alex Bond 2:20.905
3. Steve Peat 2:22.4.03
4. Josh Bryceland 2:22.659
5. Joe Smith 2:22.799
Stanny says it was a rather wet and windy race day, seeding was cancelled after a serious crash so riders spent the time cooped up in the vans trying to keep warm.
Peaty had a big wobble near the finish double and almost came to a stop.
Peaty: “Ended up 3rd on my Santa Cruz V10, pretty bad bobble and stop dead on fast bit so not happy!!@SPSyndicate all did great on 1st race together”
Josh Bryceland: “Good weekend at nant G wet as an otters and mega tough to race on 4th on the day first real outing in my @foxmtb kit! Now for a curry.Stoked”
Sam Dale: “Pretty good weekend Finished 6th. Shame about the poor lad who bust himself this Morning. Would of liked to of had a few more runs!!”
Lew Buchanan: “Shit day today, race was going so well until I slid out in a corner and crashed. Not happy…at all! :/”
