The last weekend of March saw the BDS arrive at a new venue. With purpose built trial centres like Antur Stiniog popping up in areas that fell into decline after the demise of industry they were once known for, the outdoors industry is breathing new life into Wales. Antur Stiniog is a non-profit organisation located in what remains of the biggest slate mine in the world. The trail centre, based in Blaenau Ffestiniog opened it’s doors in 2012 and offers a range of trails. The British Downhill Series hosted the first round of the series here, opting to use it for the first time due to it’s growing popularity, great facilities and challenging track.
Working with the fantastic, Paul Cram to provide coverage of the event during the weekend. Engaging with riders and trade stands in the pits to find stories. Talking to riders to find out how their run went and what the track was like, as well as communicating with editorial staff to provide results and photos for quick results during the weekend.
