Two Oswestry born bikers have taken the top two spots at the annual Enduro Championship in Powys.

Jack Cadwallader and Paul Herbert took first and second place at this year’s race in the expert class.

The event was sponsored by Jack’s parents’ family business Cadwallader LTD.

The race began in Carno, a small Montgomeryshire village, and continued through surrounding hills and forests, and saw over 200 competitors this time round.

Jack, 20, said he is pleased to win this competition for the first time.

He said: “It’s the first time I’ve won this particular event.

“It meant a lot to win with it being an event that I’ve grown up watching, and also with it being sponsored by the family business this time round – it’s a very traditional event so it’s cool to win.”

Expert class is the highest class at the events, so winning at this level is something that Jack is also really pleased by.

“Expert class is the highest class so to win is great. It can be quite difficult, the race just gone was a 100-mile lap with sprint sections too.

“I’ve been riding bikes since I was five years old, but I’ve been competing properly since about 10 years of age.

“It’s been a hobby for so long, I love doing it – of course it’d be nice to one day make a living out of bike riding, but I enjoy what I’m doing regardless.”

Jack and Paul are now preparing for the British two-day event in Rhaeadr that takes place over two days on the August bank holiday weekend on Saturday, August 25.
