WOR Events latest Short Course, Time Card Enduro again delivered the goods for the riders as the Clubs brilliant Llandrillo Forest venue in North Wales hosted the 3rd one of these events this year. The weather was uncharacteristically summer like for the first week of October but no one was complaining about the heat and blue sky that was in abundance.
The format is brilliant, Riders get a flowing and enjoyable, yet challenging and technical lap with a mileage of anything from 7 miles through to 12 miles a lap and times are allocated per class to try and keep to. Then the riders have a series of 5 or 6 special tests to go as fast as they can on, timed to the second. It all makes for a cracking days riding in a format that’s very popular and very addictive once you’ve had a go.
Aled Humphreys was the man to beat as he stomped to the overall win at the event with some really fast special test times achieved with a very neat and smooth ride around the challenging enduro terrain. Ryan Heinz followed Aled home in the Expert class.
Top Clubman was Rob Hughes with a hard fought battle with Runner Up, Robert Francom. It was the later tests that Hughes managed to reel young Robert in and deny him the class win in his first jaunt into the Clubman class. Rounding out the top 3 in class was Stephen Parry with a very close 2 second disadvantage to Francom after 5 solid tests.
The Veteran Experts in the A group was very close at the top too, Julian Rylance just doing enough to grind out the win from David Wright by just 2 seconds with the two riders never far apart all day. Wrighty in turn managed to pull a 53 second advantage over 3rd placed Chris Berry.
Matthew Connell started where he left off at the last WOR SCE event by topping the Sportsman class by 15 seconds from Arwel Davies with Dylan Edwards in a solid 3rd spot, all riders doing well in the challenging forest conditions.
The Vets B group had Betwys Y Coed based rider, Nick Evans at the sharp end of the results on his trusty Gas Gas with nearly a minutes credit to his name over Brian Dunn and Mark Heaton whom had it going well respectively in 2nd and 3rd place.
Stephen Parry (not the Clubman rider) was the top dog in the Over 50 group with Mark Dean in 2nd place and Adrian Kent in the 3rd spot in class.
Tom Brazier topped the Novice group from Dean Burgess in second place and Oli Walker in 3rd spot. A special mention must go out to young Hayden Rainford who rode his first timecard superbly with brilliant performance on his little 85cc, He will certainly be one to watch out for in the future.
The event, as expected went superbly with all riders mentioning at the end how much they had enjoyed it and when will the next one be.
The WOR would like to thank all involved for the running of the event from the staff and medics through to the timing crew and the gang of travelling marshals that ensured a good days sport was had.”
