2017 HSBC UK National Downhill Championships

June 20th, 2017

National Downhill Championships

Leighton Vans were delighted to support the National Downhill Championships once again this year. Cycle sport, and in particular MTB racing is very close to Mike Leighton’s heart and many LV customers use their awesome Transporters and Ford Customs to get their mountain bikes around the scene.

Once again, there were some big personalities from the sport competeting at the Rhyd Y Felin course in Wales. National Championship holders Greg Williamson and Rachel Atherton were there to defend their 2016 titles – which they successfully did by putting on an incredible show of skill. Greg even defended his title against current World Champion, Danny Hart.


The atmosphere at the event was fantastic and the crowds were treated to great views in the finishline area. Here’s Charlie Hatton crossing the line just 0.2s behind the title winner Greg Williamson. Photo credit: British Cycling Photographer
