VC Melyd cycling club has put road racing back on the map for cyclists in North Wales in spectacular fashion by hosting the North Wales Road Race Series (NWRRS).

NWRRS came to an end on Sunday 11th September 2016, which seen more than 140 amateur cyclists tackle five gruelling race circuits across Ruthin, Denbigh, Marsh Tracks Rhyl, Lyn Brenig and Trawsfynydd.

The challenging series was planned to include some of the toughest roads in North Wales to suit both sprinters and climbers. Riders were not only battling against demanding roads but the British weather also played a part making for exciting racing.

Cyclists travelled from all over Wales and the North West of England to compete in the series, including local clubs Marsh Tracks Race Team, Ynys Mon Race Team, Rhos-on-Sea Cycling Club. Team Chronomaster from the North West were the winning Team of the series following consistent results from their riders.

Going into the final race of the series it was all to be won as the results were tight at the top of the league table. Therefore Round 5 this weekend at Denbigh saw constant attacks from the riders all trying to get away and take the win. A small group broke away from the peloton on lap 5 of 6 and the race was won by Stephen Feeney of Team Chronomaster.

Congratulations to local rider Dylan Kerfoot-Robson of Team USN who won the group sprint scoring enough points to take the 2016 Overall North Wales Road Race Series Win by 2 points.

Following the success of this series, planning is already underway for next years’ events with VC Melyd.
