BSA GBR Series Race 1 report - Pendle

The wonderful wild and beautiful Pendle Hill was the backdrop for the first GBR of the 2017 summer race season. A big thank you goes out to The British Ski Academy for sponsoring the series this year.

Pendle is well known for its beautiful views, sheep and unpredictable weather (four seasons in one day)! Thankfully, although a little blustery, it was dry and we were ready for a great day of racing.
