The Go Race Mountain Bike series visits Llanberis on Sunday for round 3 of the 2014 series. The series provides a brilliant opportunity for youngsters to try their hand at mountain bike racing where they are given points for their finishing position as well as upon completion of different skills challenges.
With its hard compact surface and lack of climbs, the Llanberis course is ideal for those new to the sport of mountain bike racing. Signing on is from 9:00 am with racing starting at 10:30am.
With previous winners having progressed to National races and even the British Cycling Olympic Development Programme, the series provides a brilliant platform for youngsters to gain racing experience at grassroots level.
From the woods of Betws y Coed and Coed y Brenin, to the slate quarries of Llanberis, the 2014 series will provide challenging, fun races on varied terrain. The series will be hosted by a handful of the region's clubs including Clwb Beicio Mynydd Dyffryn Conwy, Dreigiau Coed y Brenin, Clwb Beicio Mynydd Eryri, Llanfyllin High School and Wrexham Roads Club.
