Popped down to Swansea today to watch the first Redbull downforce in the UK.
All the Atherton posse were in attendance, but not racing as it was strictly amateurs only :?
Possibly the worst/least publicity ever for a downhill event, big missed opportunity for Swansea council , but there we are :roll:
Few pics, event was won by Rowan Sorrell.
