This week Darren and Sally, VC Melyd riders attend the UCI World Championships 2017 at the Albi Race Circuit France.
Having previously dug deep to qualify for their positions the riders stood to battle in both Road Race and Time Trial respectively.
Alas, it would also seem that a particularly un Welsh temperature had to be beaten as well.
Out of a field 12 for the Women’s 60-64 event, Sally came in at 39 minutes 14 and a very respectable 5th place to a first of 38 minutes 05 to the Netherlands based Marti Valks of GWC De Adelaar.
As temperatures continued to ride Darren took the wise decision not to take part in the road race event as temperatures remained above 40C.
Congratulations from everyone at VC Melyd to you both for achieving what most of us could only dream of.
