What stood out above all else during this event was the fantastic energy and positive attitudes of everyone who entered. Special recognition goes out to 17 year old Flynn who rode this as his first roadbook rally on his XLR 125. Accompanied by his father George Denninson, Flynn was buzzing with enthusiasm from start to finish. The future of adventure rallying looks bright for this young one!
Another father son duo comprised of Dyfrig and Ieuan Harries. Ieuan rode the entire course with his partner Charlotte as pillion passenger. Big respect.
Some of the finishers who completed the entire route in 12 hours or less include Tim Stevens, Dan Preece, Mitch Reynolds and John Reynolds. Well done guys!
This was an impressive demonstration of dedication and mental stamina, and as the riders rolled into the final checkpoint in Abergavenny that evening, the smiles and positive feedback said it all, with several riders immediately signing up for the second round in a couple of weeks time! Completing this course, irrespective of the twelve hour time challenge was a feat in itself and everybody who made it to the finish line should be proud of their achievement.
So thank you to all the riders who put themselves up to the challenge. Thank you to Wales for being absolutely stunning and keeping it’s typical wet weather at bay. Thanks to all the willing, behind the scenes crew who worked so hard to keep the event rolling smoothly.
