Dylan aiming for national success at Welsh Cycling Championships

A former Rydal Penrhos pupil and cycling star will be aiming for further national success at a high-profile competition this weekend.

Dylan Kerfoot-Robson, who left the school in 2011, will be taking his place in the Senior Men’s Road Race field at the 2019 Welsh Cycling Championships, which take place around Ruthin on Sunday, June 2.

The St Asaph native and Commonwealth Games competitor is looking to secure the crown he originally won in 2017, and Kerfoot-Robson will be representing Vitrus Pro Cycling and B Brother UK.

Last year’s winner James Phillips is expected to challenge the Old Rydal Penrhosian in the hopes of securing the title, with the race starting at Ruthin Rugby Club and finishing on St Peter's Square following a 118.6km kilometre circuit.

Anne Adams-King, Welsh Cycling chief executive officer, said: "I am pleased to see this year's event head up to North Wales to the lovely and picturesque town of Ruthin, and on a course which will no doubt produce some fantastic racing that is something not to be missed."

The cyclist is the son of Head of Science Dave Robson and has achieved a considerable amount at prestigious events across the continent during what has been a glittering young career to date.

Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, added: “Dylan is an enormously talented individual who is proving he belongs on the international cycling stage, and everyone at Rydal Penrhos wishes him the very best of luck at the Welsh Championships this weekend.”
