North Wales Road Race 2017 Announced.

After the huge success and positive feedback from last years VC Melyd North Wales Road Race Series – we are proud to announce that this will be returning for 2017 with cooperation from Ynys Mon Race Team.

The following release was made last week by our Road Race Secretary Simon Parkinson.

Please see below dates for next year’s races in North Wales that VC Melyd will be hosting in 2017. We have teamed up with Ynys Mon Race Team to put on a 2 day weekend of racing in June. Ynys Mon Race Team put on a fantastic race last year on the Llangefni Circuit, Anglesey.

North Wales Road Race

9th April – North Wales Road Race – Denbigh (Category 2/3/4)

North Wales King of the Mountain Series (Category 2/3/4)

7th May – Round 1 – Llyn Brenig
10/11th June – Round 2 – Trawsfynydd/Llangefni
16th July – Round 3 – Ruthin

VC Melyd anticipate our expenditure to be less next season due to the fact we purchased lots of equipment last season. Therefore we have reduced the entry fee per race day to £25 for 2017 and we’ll also be distributing prize money at each race. Prize money will also be awarded for the winner of the King of the Mountain Series. Entries open January 2017.
