Over the weekend of 16th - 17th September a dozen riders and support crew enjoyed recreating the experience of the Competition Testers from Wolverhampton's Sunbeam and AJS factories in the 1920s. This included a wet ascent of the notorious Bwlch-y-groes and a crossing of the Berwyns in thick mist which reduced visibility to a few feet. Sign up for next year's - the 25th anniversary. Not to be missed!
