HAFREN Dirt Bike Club hosted the Welsh Open Youth Hare n Hounds last week.

The Llanidloes-based club has enjoyed a busy summer having also hosted a round of the British Enduro Championship (BEC).

Last week the stars of the future took on two miles of track and four miles of fields in Trefeglwys with spectators out on force to support the talented line-up.

The first novice race gave less experienced riders a taste of life on the track, including brothers Jack and Connor Jones from Llanidloes.

The Expert 50cc riders led the field from the 85cc riders with local HDBC rider Jac Mills Stephens winning the 85cc class.

Fellow club member Harry Jones took a tumble a few laps in and dropped back before remounting his bike to finish seventh in the 50cc class with cousin cousin Max Jones coming home in 11th.

Other local riders Harri Davies took third in the 50cc class, Talan Harbour won the FB50 class and Jamie Williams made the trip from Brecon worthwhile by taking the top spot in the Fun Bike class after watching his brother compete at the British Enduro Championship a few days earlier.

Meanwhile Owain Corbett, from Builth Wells, took the 65cc title and overall win.

The second race was made more challenging with several few extra loops added in to make the track longer with strong racing across the classes from 65cc to 125/150c.

Event sponsor, Freestyle Newtown had all three members of their race team competing

Sion Evans won the BW85 class with Endaf Hughes taking the top spot in the SW85 class ahead of team mate Rhydian Rees.

Ifan Jones, from Pontrhydfendigaid, completed the SW85 podium for a Husqavarna podium clean sweep despite having his bike stolen just a few weeks ago.

Kris Price and Bradley Price battled it out for the race win and were the only riders to complete 15 laps.

George Hughes finished seventh overall and fifth in the open class while Hafren DBC riders Rees Jones was sixth in the 85SW class with Scott Gethin two places behind.

The 65cc winner was Jayden Jones who finished 17 places ahead of his nearest class rival in the overall standings with a top 10 finish while Chloe Price took the award for best female expert rider
