Welsh Time Card Championship Round 2

Round two of the Welsh Enduro Championship could well have been a round of the BEC last Sunday with the class of Championship and Expert riders entered on the Rhayader MCC run Jack Frost Enduro. No less than 17 championship riders kicked their bikes into gear at just gone 10am for the first of the six laps aprox 12 mile in length which composed of two checks per lap and a brand new special test adjacent to the start finish area whilst the riders pit crews basket in glorious sunshine at the Saintswell MX and training event venue. As the day would progress the check times would tighten whilst almost everybody cleaned the final check of the day the odd few dropped a minute or two in the expert class proving the club having got the timings spot on. 

 Steve Holcolme on the Beta 390 set down the gauntlet from the opening test also timed on the opening lap and went on to win the event overall after the six laps and 7 timed special tests, Dan Mundell from Barnstaple took the runner up spot riding another Beta and even beat Holcolme from Tiverton on the second test by just one second , the final podium position went to Alex Snow from again from Tiverton aboard a Gas Gas 350. 

 The expert class was just as close on the tests Sam Hughes from Oswestry took the win riding a 125 KTM whilst Douglas Late all the way from St Albans finished second riding a Beta 250 and third place was taken by local rider Shaun Buchan from Llandrindod Wells. 

 Star of the Clubman class was under 19s rider Sion Evans on a Husqvarna 125 who set a blistering time on his opening test such was the Lampeter riders pace he stopped the clocks with a time good enough to beat top expert rider Sam Hughes, from there on Evans backed off for the remaining tests and still finished well over a minute ahead of runner up and team mate Rhydian Rees from Builth Wells again aboard a Husky 125. Third place went to another Lampeter rider as Carwyn Rosser KTM 250 finishing just 5 seconds behind Rees but did enough to to claim the final podium position by just two seconds from Builth Wells rider Liam Ryland on a Gas Gas who took fourth. 

 In the Ladies class Elizabeth Tett from Bewdley took the win on a KTM 150 whilst runner up went to Zoe Zembruski from Llandrindod Wells riding a Beta 200 and Gemma Holtham from Worcester taking third place on a KTM 250. 

 John Shirt from Macclesfield took the win in the over 40s class by just 7 seconds on a Gas Gas 350 from Neil Thomas from Bridgend on a KTM 300 whilst Aaron Crowder took third place. The over 50s class was again as competitive as ever Martin Paosila-Jones from Llandrindod Wells took the win on a Beta 390 by just 7 seconds from Neil Bowker from Guildford riding a Beta 125, Kevin Wallace from Hereford took third place on a Sherco 300 just another 7 seconds adrift of Bowker. 

 The two popular Sportsman classes A and B saw a high entry of riders in the A class Nuneaton rider Mathew Woolridge on a Beta 390 took the win beating Rhayader local Aaron Bates on a Gas Gas 250 by just 9 seconds, third place went to Andrew Jervis from Wrexham on a Gas Gas 250. The B class saw Derby rider Phil Oxley take the win riding a KTM 150, Rhayader rider Cameron James took second on a Gas Gas 250 whilst third place went to Robin Mansell from Shifnal on a KTM 300
