The final round of the HSBC UK National Cross Country Mountain Bike Series was held at the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth, Wales on the weekend of the 5th-6th August 2017. This was the climax to an epic 5 round series.
Liv AWOL rider Lauren Higham rode in all 5 events, which began back in April at Pembrey, Carmarthenshire, moving on to Wasing Park, Berkshire for round 2, then Aske Estate, Richmond (round 3), followed by Dalby Forest, Yorkshire (round 4) and finally culminating in the last round at Builth. Lauren placed 6th in three of the rounds and in 8th and 9th in the other two, resulting in a very solid 8th place overall in the series. Congratulations to Lauren for her achievement in the series, and for somehow getting her Liv AWOL kit clean for the final round!
And once again, many thanks to the amazing photography skills of Huw Williams.
