Brayton wins British downhill round 4 at Caersws

On race day of the Halo British Downhill Series in Caersws, the hill was covered with a light mist with blue skies poking out in the distance. Once the sun began to rise, the mist burned off, leaving a glorious day. The track was a bit damp and greasy in a few parts - somewhat stickier and grippier and not as loose as the dust had bonded together. Then all hell broke loose, 15:15 on the dot and the heavens opened and it rained cats and dogs of biblical proportions.
