Next up: Tarenig and Cambrian rallies

I got my entry in nice and early for the WTRA Cambrian Rally, which will be the last round of the 2014 All Terrain Rally Challenge but the other day I realised that it's a week later than last year! I'm gutted because that means I'll miss the last round of the Welsh enduro championship, the Fowlers enduro. Last year's event was really good - don't get me wrong, I'm pretty sure it was the hardest enduro I've ever done, but I was looking forward to having another go at it this year!

The Jacko Memorial enduro turned out ok and the Wales Air Ambulance EXC definitely appreciated the new air filter and spark plug., she's been treated like royalty recently! I'll have to check the front wheel bearings before the Tarenig Rally and I'll be fitting a new chain and sprockets. Other than that I lost one fork guard bolt at the Jacko and I've already replaced the rusty footpeg split pins.

The Tarenig Rally is full to the brim! With a capacity entry of 175 riders it's going to be a great event and there will be plenty of competition in all classes. I'm not sure what I can realistically achieve in the ATRC, we'll have to wait and see how the Tarenig goes first, but at the very least I'd like to hold onto 3rd. Bring on another "home round" on the 28th!
