Stacy Fisher and Adam Brayton rocked the slopes in Antur Stiniog to reign supreme in the rain in round three of the Lloyds Bank National Downhill Series.

Antur Stiniog, on the side of Mount Snowdon, is known for its wild and unpredictable weather, making it a tough and technical track for riders. Besides the challenging rocky terrain the riders had to navigate, the weather went through all four seasons to really put them to the test.

Elite

Stacey Fisher stormed to the elite women’s win, returning from injury in style. Having crashed at the UCI World Cup in Fort William, Fisher put it all out on the slopes of Antur Stiniog to return to racing with a huge win. Fisher clocked 2:39.230 to take the victory just ahead of Jess Stone, who rode a time of 2:39.712 to secure second. Monika Mixova came home third on 2:45.437.

Adam Brayton took his first win of the year, clocking a time of 2:17.877 in the elite open category. Luke Mumford, who finished second in the last round in Fort William, was fastest out the gate, but a fall saw him out of the podium places. Roger Vieria took second ahead of Mike Jones, while Joshua Brazier and Toby Driscoll secured fourth and fifth, respectively.
