Greg Williamson Takes Great Podium at British Nationals

Following on from his break out performance at the opening World Cup round in Fort William, Trek World Racing's Greg Williamson has taken an important podium at the 2013 British National Downhill Championships held in Bala, Wales.

Prior to his 3rd place on Sunday, Greg's best ever result in the elite category at the Nationals was 8th last year (and he finished 12th in 2011). The British National Downhill Team is one of the toughest to be selected for with so many of the World's Top 20 riders being British, and only a maximum 7 being able to race for the nation next month in South Africa. Greg is hoping to represent Britain for the first time in his career and Sunday's result certainly helped the cause.

After qualifying 10th in the dry and dusty conditions, on a course he's never raced before, Greg stepped it up for the final:

"After a smooth and steady qualifier I was hungry for my final race run. I started off strong to nail every section with a few loose moments mid-way down the track, then I pedalled hard to the finish which put me 3rd and made me a very proud Scotsman. I ran the Bontrager G5 tires which were perfect for the conditions, and the bike performed brilliantly."

Greg is currently in Andorra for World Cup #3, happening this weekend.
