Midweek Series – Race 1

Joe Brown Midweek Series


Race 1 – Moel Tryfan


Well at least everybody found the big rock, I hadn’t moved it since Saturday and the race was run in the best conditions since its inauguration.


Well done to Gwyn Owen making a rare appearance on the mountain winning in 18.24 ahead of John Rowley in 18.41 and Aled Edwards in 18.52.


John Parkinson took the v40 and 4th in 19.02, Pennine’s Dave Soles took v50 and 12th in 20.59.
Mabon Llyr was 1st u16 and 25th in 22.02, Phil Tan was1st v60 and 40th in 23.56, while Emyr Davies took the v70 and 62nd in 26.08.


In the Ladies the star of the night was young Bronwen Jenkinson. Ahead of her dad until he threatened to cut her pocket money (tro nesaf Paul!), Bronwen came to win overall in a new U16 record of 22.22, 26th, ahead of Chester Tri’s Lisa Grantham 29th in 22.34 and Cybi’s Michaela Owen 37th in 23.35.
Kath Broatch set a new L40 record of 24.06 in 41st, Ellie Salisbury a new LV50 record in 25.42 and 54th, while Maggie Oliver took the LV60, 91st in 31.19.


Thanks to all the helpers. It got cold towards the end, and Pauline and her family at Fron School, still threatened with closure, warmed everybody up with the panads.


In the Caernarfon Tyres Junior Championship 35 turned up all looking splendid in their new designer bibs, full results will be on display at the next race.


Next race – Foel Lus – Tues 9th April.
