Easter Weekend saw the annual BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sports) Downhill Championship being held in Caersws in Wales. For everyone who hasn’t experienced a BUCS Mountainbike event, the atmosphere created by a couple of hundred bike-mad students is unique to say the least! Most Universities and a lot of colleges are represented and as proud sponsors of Heriot Watt Mountainbike Club (who have a record of placing a team within in the top 10 teams overall) we were excited to see how they fared.
In the end they placed 3rd overall with 2 riders putting in race runs which were in the top 20 of a field of 200 racers which was a great result. It would also seem they managed to squeeze in a cheeky BBQ which is even more impressive in Wales in April!
