Welsh News

Not everyone was happy with the confirmation that the Olympic mountain bike races will be held on a course at Hadleigh Farm in Essex. The Welsh Minister for Heritage, Alun Ffred Jones, commented, “I’m disappointed that London 2012 hasn’t looked beyond Essex, one of England’s flattest counties, for venues for the mountain biking events during the 2012 Games. Whilst this new course may meet the technical requirements for the competition, one thing we do have in Wales is plenty of mountains and some truly world-class mountain bike courses. This was an opportunity for LOCOG to show in a concrete way how serious they are about spreading the benefits of the 2012 Games beyond the south east of England. That opportunity has now been missed.” Yea right, Alun Ffred, some opportunity. If we must have the bloody Olympics in Llondon why would we have the mountain biking in Wales?  Ffu*# Off you dope.
