Last weekend saw the third BB200 take place in deepest, darkest mid-Wales. This year used the same route as the previous 2 years but just to keep it interesting it was reversed. The backwards route meant a fast start but also meant a real ‘sting in the tail’ … it really was quite nasty considering most riders were already on their last legs by that point!

I’m not going to go into great detail about times and stuff (you can find all those over on the forum) but I would like to congratulate Phil Simcock, the first home in just over 13 hours.

So, that’s the end of the BB200 as we’ve known it for 3 years. Next year will see the rebirth of the BB200 with a whole new route … watch this space.


I’m sure we can find something to replace the ever popular Carnau!
