Team Events
Each year, all 8 regions send selected teams to various team events to battle it out for those vital podium places and rosettes. If you are interested in representing Wales then you just have to be regularly attending BD training and BD competitions. Riders submit their training attendance dates and BD competition scores to be selected. Our 2017 selection policies will appear here soon.
The team events are so much fun! Here are the 2016 highlights!
