Last year howies sponsored the Cardigan Street race. Here's a little taster from last year, when the local streets were taken over by riders to bring in 2010 Welsh National Champion, Rhys Lloyd, in a photo-finish.
This year, howies are working with local cycling club Velo Teifi to bring back the Cardigan street race. The laps made around our little town will once again be the biggest race of the Welsh Crit calendar; the decider for Welsh National Championships.
It will be a very fast talented field. The course is amazing, with the start / finish line right outside the new howies shop...
Race day is August 14th with 6 races taking place on the day:
- 12.45pm - Race 1 Youth Cat C D E
- 1.30 pm - Race 2 Youth CAT A B
- 2.20pm - Race 3 Open race to anyone over 16
- 3.00pm - Race 4 Female Nation championships and Masters
- 4.00pm - Race 5 Male Welsh National Championship Elite Cat 1/2/3
- 5.10pm - Race 6 Cat 3-4 riders
Like last year, there will almost certainly also be a healthy amount of local competition as riders from our office go head-to-head with other local shops and businesses. (Did you spot the howies boys at 1:55?)
We welcome you to join us speed the streets and get involved in what promises to be a fast, action packed day. With excellent vantage points along the entire course there are plenty of reasons to come down and show your support!
