Michelin Road Racer Daley Mathison Wins Welsh Open

Posted on


Michelin-sponsored road racer, Daley Mathison, took the top spot on the podium in the Welsh Open at the historic Aberdare Park National Road Races recently. Riding his Hold Taj Suzuki GSXR600 fitted with

Michelin’s Power Cup tyres, Mathison beat off stiff competition to be crowned the victor in a race that has been running for more than sixty years.

In glorious dry, sunny conditions Daley rode to victory in front of more than 4,000 spectators and as such has earned his free place back on the grid at next year’s event. Following a close battle with fellow rider Mark Goodings, Mathison made every split second count and finished a nail-biting 0.1 of a second ahead.

Speaking of the win, Daley said: “This is the first time I’ve competed at the Aberdare Park Road Races since 2010 and this year I was determined to show what I could do. We struggled with the gearing and were chasing suspension settings over the weekend, but the tyres performed flawlessly and we still came away with the win despite it all!”

The next challenge for Daley will be the Ulster Grand Prix coming up in mid-August and with the focus and determination shown at the Welsh Open it looks like Mathison will be a serious contender for the top spots.
