With a dry but windy start early on the Saturday during scrutineering the organising team thought the promised rain might have held off, but as the first bikes left the start line at Brynllewelin Farm on Llanllwni Mountain the rain begin to come down.
As the day went on the weather worsened, not that that affected many of the riders who were tackling a 38 mile lap, of on and off road and going to be ridden three times by most riders.
Sunday morning however saw bright sunshine greet the riders who had travelled from as far as Ireland and the Isle of Man to compete on the DDBC rally, with the organisers having bought the start time forward to 9am to give them an earlier finish to the day to make their way home.
The course seemed far easier many thought, but there was still plenty of deep standing water about and wet weather riding gear was still needed.
The overall win would go to Jordan Corkill from the Isle of Man whilst the runner up was Lee Green from the Midlands, another Manx rider Robert Quayle would take 3rd overall.
