Tregaron is a tiny village in South Wales but this past weekend it was transformed into a venue for downhill racers to do their stuff. Closed winding roads with some challenging corners made for a great run and with a campsite, organised up lifts and good food courtesy of the Y Talbot pub in the village centre, the stage was set for a fantastic weekend. There were 79 riders, 41 of which were racing with a guarantee of three runs and then into knockout heats. It was really well organised by 'The Brianne Collective' (Tom Campbell and Ry Swanton amongst others) and with points going towards the BDSL (British Downhill Skateboarding League) it was sure to be very competitive. I wasn't racing (although I couldn't resist trying out the course "luge style"). Instead I drove one of the "up lift" vans. This was a great opportunity to get close to the action.
Have a look at my video for an 'on board' view of the run[ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WoaN-3o9fQ&feature=youtu.be ] . Look out for the Brianne Collectives other events throughout the year as they are well worth a visit!
