Huw Buck Jones:
Huw has been competing in cycling since he was just seven years old, and was introduced to the Welsh Mountain Bike Series at the age of eleven. He has represented Great Britain on both the European and World stage, and is currently riding for the Wales Racing Academy.
Having represented Welsh Cycling at the UCI Cycling World Championships in Glasgow, Huw competed in the Mountain Bike Cross-Country U23s event against some of the top riders in the sport. Huw said “It was quite good, all the crowds as well – it was just a great experience. Every time we went through, especially the rock section the crowd was mega, it was special. I think they pushed me on more and it was a great event to be a part of.”
SD Team is a proud long-standing supporter of the Wales Racing Academy after sponsoring Welsh Cycling for the past eight years. SD has enabled the team to broaden their opportunities for athletes in training and in preparing for competitions across road and track.
Nick Jones, Managing Director of SD, added: “The whole team is delighted for Amy and Huw and we just want to congratulate them on their amazing achievements. They took on some of the toughest competitors out there, and it’s inspiring to see them be a part of such a remarkable event. They did Welsh Cycling proud.”
