Rider Cat Result
David Fletcher Elite Men 10th
Rab Wardell Elite Men 14th
Ben Roff Elite Men 44th
Billy Harding Junior 11th

Orange Monkey Pro Team The course at Margam was drastically improved from 2013 with some good technical sections more befitting to a National level race and with the sun beaming and the team in high spirits we were looking forward to a great weekend of racing.

However expectation is high. As the countries leading mountain bike team people expect results. The reality however can sometimes be that with pressure, specific training blocks and higher goals the results don’t quite meet expectation.

In Margam Park the results didn’t come. Our British athletes gave 100%, of that we can have little doubt but with the exception of Rab who comes back from injury and begins to find his form the disappointment was clear to see.

The British series is important to us as a team and to the riders individually and it is taken very seriously - we know we must improve when we meet again at Sherwood Forest in 4 weeks time.
