Ystwyth TT season starts to climb

Four weeks into the 2017 TT season saw the first of the two time trials which will be held this year on the 12-mile Nant yr Arian course, descending and then ascending the A44 climb. This week saw strong performances again from the familiar names of the past few weeks, but performing well also were new riders joining the series. There were some notable family performances, with three members of the Brewer family racing, as well as a Skot family pair-up. Next week the series returns to the Llety Gwyn course, for a 7pm start.
