Cathro speed reports…

June 29 2011

The Welsh sun was out in full force for the third round of the BDS series in Llangollen and many found themselves burnt in the heat. Team MTBcut got the sunscreen out and got to business.

The track was wild slick and short. It demanded absolute precision as the times were super tight. Fraser was loving it in practice, getting wild and putting the knee down in the corners. When it came to racing a cautious run saw him place a disappointing 10th. Fraser was not best pleased with his result and looked forward to moving forward and smashing it in Canada.

I was loving the steep tight track and so was my Orange 322. It felt good to get back on the new bike and I was looking forward to a good result. I had a decent run but pushed it too hard and blew out some corners loosing valuable seconds. I was pretty pleased with 8th and excited about hitting the next world cup in Canada.
